Be still my heart. I had to leave my pass along irises at the old garden for the new owner to enjoy.
They’re sure to be making them happy, Donna!
It’s very pretty and I expect all the more valuable for the memories associated with it.
There is a purity to the color of this iris that I admire. The neighbor had brought them from her previous home and I think she said her mother grew it.
Thanks Cathy. It’s been a good year for irises.
Is that a bearded iris, or Iris pallida?
Tony, I’m not sure how to tell them apart.
I doubt that they can be keyed out, since Iris pallida is an ancestor to some of the bearded iris. I just identified mine by the description. They have rather plain bluish green foliage and tall but relatively thin floral stalks. The blue flowers are rather simple, with a fragrance similar to grape soda. If they are Iris pallida, you would recognize pictures of the species as the same thing.
