Re: Back to spring bulbs


Auralie, I'd find this very hard to confuse with a frit and a lovely little iris it is! I've read about it before but have never grown it. This may be going on my list this fall. Thanks for sharing - and I'm glad you planted this one instead of giving it away! I, too, have a plant I will need help IDing as soon as I get around to taking a pic.

Subject: [CHAT] Back to spring bulbs


OK guys, I'll quit complaining.  Thanks for listening.
In all the confusion around my flower beds last fall, I
didn't have the place to plant spring bulbs that I had
planned on.  In fact, it was so confused, that I gave
away most of them, and plain forgot what I had
planted.  This spring I found a plant coming up in an
odd spot under the WNW eave of the house that I
could not identify.  It was obviously not a tulip or a
daffodil. It was too large for crocus or the  other
small bulbs I might have planted.  What was it?  I
asked a visiting friend who is an orchid specialist,
but knows quite a lot abut plants, and he thought
it might be a fritillaria.  Well, when it bloomed, I dug
through old bulb orders to identify it, for it was
totally new to me.  I can't remember why I bought
it.  What I have is Iris bucharica, and I can't imagine
why I had never seen it before.  What a charming
plant!  Each bulb seems to have produced two or
three stems, and each stem has six or seven yellow
and white iris blooms - each about two inches high.
The whole plant is about 12-15 inches high.  I may be
the only ignorant one here, but if, like me, you don't
know this plant, do give it a look.
