Neato. I have a clump of it too but it isn't
anywhere near 30 years old! Maybe the one down the road is, it's huge. Love it
too. I don't find it fertile tho, how about you?

First iris I fell in love with as a child. Wish they would all grow and
bloom like this. every year.

buried in leaves that blow in,
undisturbed for ~30 yrs. Bright red-purple

This one usually is at least partly frozen out by erratic winter
early spring freezes. It must have liked our record cold winter -
have seen it put up so many stalks. If it did this every year, I
wouldn't have started pollen daubing!
