This is GUATEMALA................A 2005 Tom Johnson Introduction. Unusual.
It is listed as an early bloomer, but it blooms mid-season for me.  It could be that it just seems to be a midseason bloomer to me, because I'm working with quite a few V VE, VE to E varieties in my crosses. Our weather is usually warm enough to have irises bloom in late February, or early March, but there are just not many of those V VE irises that exist. Part of my hybridizing efforts is to create more of these irises so those of us in the warm southern states can experience a longer bloom season. The biggest drawback for introducing irises that bloom this early in the season is that many of them are usually long past 'their bloom season' by the time the Iris Treks or AIS Conventions are in full swing. So <alas> they are rarely seen by the public.
