This old local MTB (and an old local Aphylla) were the first
irises that I grew. This iris was found growing in sod
uncultivated for many years at an abandoned homestead a mile
away from here. I've seen it several places still being grown in
this area. 60 miles east of here there is a similar old iris still
in cultivation, only it is slightly taller and the falls a lighter
red in color.

This old MTB finishes blooming just after my TBs have finished
blooming. It is 14" - 16" tall. It's hard to get a shot of an
individual blossom, as the stems usually produce gobs of blossoms
close together. This iris has never produced seed pods, here.
