Mine also just opened today, and is also new just
last year. My picture also shows a bud quite close to this open flower,
hopefully just because it's in its first year. It's about 18"

like the flower on this iris! first year bloom, and it has quite a full stalk.
stalks a little too pinched, I feel. >>> see the second
Should be a fantastic clump, though!
Yes, I've been
trying to hybridize it . . . don't know yet if any pods set. Will know in a
few days, though!
