The deep purple form of I. germanica as it blooms here has typical
germanica haft marks and only blooms during the main iris season in the
spring, and certainly not for three months even then. Perhaps what you have
been seeing is CRIMSON KING (Barr, 1893), which reportedly blooms nearly
year round in parts of California.
