unknown historic purple: Mother's Flags

  • Subject: [iris-photos] unknown historic purple: Mother's Flags

This is the flower that introduced me to iris. We moved to the farm in north central Texas in December of 1960. By early spring there were masses of this purple flower covering the entire hill above our house.  Mother called them flags. Three years ago at a high school reunion I went by and ask for a start of them. I don't remember them ever getting this tall, but then they never had any care back in those days. Here they grew 35" tall and the flower is 5"X5". There is a slight scent.
