First big flower of 2012 - Unexpected guest


First big flower of 2012 - Unexpected guest

Spotted this iris in the corner in a pot of a grass plant dug from my mothers' garden. Must have hitched a lift!

Does it grow from a bulb or rhizome?

Not sure meanie, unless i dig it up : / I am assuming there was a patch next to the grass plant so it could be a rhizome I also dug up with it OR I could have inadvertanly potted it up with a lose bulb. Of course that doesn't help at all i know but was very surprised to spot it

not sure i could follow meanie's remark but that flower is just gorgeous!

It looks like a form of Iris Unguicularis (was Stylosa)colour is Variable and has little or no stem, normally flowers now.
Ask Alex on Corfu they grow wild there.
If you do stick your finger you will find a rhizome.

I agree with Bjs.
Lucky you - unexpected flower:)
