[Edited update: Mystery solved. According to someone who grows this, accosted as I passed their garden while I was out on a walk, this is ‘Rare Edition.’ Thanks to everyone who contributed their guess. Helen]
For the iris experts out there: What is the name of this lovely little plicata iris growing on a neighbour’s slope?
Once you get past Iris or, maybe if you want to get fancy, Iris germanica or Iris florentina or (and I’ve killed this one) Iris pallida ‘Variegata’ you’ve pretty much exhausted my irisology. Purple is all I grow.
Thought it might be easy to identify with a picture as reference. But, gee, did you know you can Google a google iris varieties out there. Any ideas for this one?
