Nice photos Pearl!!!!    I grew these years ago.  Never did find out what variety they were.  Very dependable iris.............. that seem to thrive on neglect.

Subject: [iris-photos] i. Albicans?

Is this i. Albicans? On a genealogy research trip three years ago I found this iris growing in an abandoned cemetery. Most of the headstones in that cemetery were dated in the late 1800's. I commented "My kind of flower. It has grown here for at least a hundred years with no help from a human hand." My sister found a bag and gathered us a start. I realize they could have been planted at a later date, but the cemetery has not been tended for a long time and I think they couldn't have been much later than the early 1900's.
