Another new bulb – Iris bucharica

This sort of jumped out at me today and I had to pick one up without hesitation (or any research).

The leaves are so un-Iris-like I’d have never guessed it was an Iris, if it weren’t for the flowers anyway. I was musing about using Iris reticulata ‘Cantab’ in the warmest part of my back yard (along with the purple crocus and Snowdrops) but I think this will take that position.

This spring it should be interesting to see all the new plants and bulbs start to flower and fill in.
