I got my I. kashmiriana from Linda Mann in 2000, and when it bloomed this
spring, the stalk was rather short (17") and the flowers were on the
smallish side, too. However, newly planted irises often put up stalks that
are far short of their typical height the first year they bloom here. I
presume I have the "purple" variety, though I would describe the bloom as a
blue-violet bitone. Given that chromosome counts of 44 have been reported
for I. kashmiriana, has anyone considered that it might be a form of I.
germanica that has wandered off the beaten track, like its neighbor, I.
nepalensis? A germanica with 14 buds, such as Bill Shear mentions, would be
quite a novelty, however. And speaking of dormant, this iris so nearly
disappeared last winter that I thought I had lost it (also, a most
un-germanica like trait), but it came back and bloomed this spring.
