Jack’s Walk

Most of the wild iris that Jack and I find is small and purple so I was quite surprised to come upon this patch of tall, bright yellow plants. I’ve never seen iris this colour or size in the wild and that makes its finding a special treat. Only one plant was still in flower, but I’ve marked the location and next year I hope to get here when the full show is blooming.

    Ooh, nice! The wild-type iris here (skalbe) is actually yellow (though not particularly tall), which surprised me the first time I saw it, because I, too, remember wild iris being purple. It’s beautiful, I wonder if this is an alternate phenotype or an alternate species.
