My animals' veterinarian loves irises and grows a
number of them around her office building as well as at her home.
Yesterday at her office, she asked me to look at pictures she had taken recently
of what she referred to as a "mutation" that came up in one of her office
beds. I asked her if she had used any herbicide or pesticide in or near
the beds and she said nothing had been put on them other than an occasional
spray of urine by a passing canine client. They bloomed in the spring, and
the attached photos show the rebloom stalks this fall. I told her that it
could be from a bee pod, but I have never seen this form on a bearded
iris. Any ideas? I do have a couple more photos if anyone wants to
