So many really nice iris, Wim!
Iris setosa ssp. canadensis (now Iris hookeri) was the first species iris I ever grew. It came form a Chapter plant sale,. As an introduction to species iris, I think it is the very best one for a newbie grower. It is easy, adaptable to different climates, floriferous, colorful, yet intricate and not overpowering.

David, good to see such a deep color form, but I'm not sure your plant is well, both the foliage and flower give the impression of a possible virus.

You're spot on Mark and it's also been confirmed on the SRGC Forum. This one is virused too-Iris lutescens alba-and both plants are now in the bin :(
couldn't you keep the plant a little longer to save seeds ??I am searching Iris lutescens alba sins a few years

For a minute there, Tom, I thought that was very late for New Mexico; then I saw you were zone 5/6 - no wonder. Katherine Hodgkin is one of my favorites.
Iris suaveolens - an old patch and a 3 year "seedling". No new growth, just evergreen foliage.
First bearded iris of the season: Iris pumila aequiloba
Iris suaveolens is usually the first to open in my garden.
Looking good, Tom. Iris suaveolens is the first to bloom here too, Rick.
