Re: Re: J. Iris


I've seen a yellow African iris that is quite nice. I'm going to try--maybe this week--to get my African iris bed re-established. They are white with splashes of indigo and yellow. I'd like to mix in a few yellow ones.

Would be willing to bet that your yellow iris were Iris pseudacorus,
a European, SW asian iris that has naturalized here and is extremely
vigorous.

Hmmm- I had some yellow iris that were water lovers that sounded like
they might have been these- but had to dig them out as they were
taking
over my camelia's space.  They got huge and spread though- so not sure
they were Japanese.
  Oh- I found a website with some pics- and I DO have one japanese
variety (not sure which one)  that is a lovely white with lavendar
and a
touch of yellow.  Mine have already bloomed though- so I don't have a
picture to share.

Flowers are large, 6 - 8+ inches, and all petals are falls (the down-
turning ones), no standards (the upright ones). They are water
irises, requiring 1 - 2 inches of water per week.

I have a couple of bearded iris varieties, and some
other kind of iris (might be Japanese??) but not sure.

How would I know if I had a japanese iris (since the
tag is long gone).  Anything obvious to ID it?
