Someone else off line said the same thing. I'm just so happy it's doing so well. I've tried for 4 years to be up there to catch it blooming. You might know the year that gas up there and back wasn't cheap, but seeing this iris was worth it.
I'm still looking for a picture of it on the internet, but so far no luck.
I know I've seen that iris posted somewhere but can't remember where.

Does anyone know anything about this kind of iris?
My references regarding iris native to AZ are in storage, but it looks a lot like the I. missouriensis that grows at similar altitude in southwestern New Mexico.
