RE: Verna vs cristata foliage?

Verna is generally described as having more linear upright foliage than 
cristata, which is why I suspect this is probably just an odd growth 
habit of cristata, but like you say, those descriptions may be for verna 
in bloom.  Plus the habitat seems harsh for cristata, especially for it 
to be looking so lush.

I've cross-posted to the iris species group - maybe someone there grows 
it and can comment.

<That was a long time ago, and I don’t have the pictures online, but I 
remember the foliage as more erect than in your photo. Then again, maybe 
the foliage is more upright earlier in the spring, during flowering.

We need someone who’s actually grown it and seen it year round.>
