Please, does anyone recognise this pretty Iris reticulata? I found it at a Garden Centre today, wrongly labelled, and they (naturally!) didn't know its name. I'd love to know!

So many of them are similar, Spritz, but I would suggest that it might be 'Clairette'.

Oh no! Back to the drawing board. :-((

it looks similar to I bakeriana. I have one in my plant profile but the photo is blurred and on its side :o( Google-ing it might be a better option what do you think?

I will, Sbg. :-)))

No - not I. bakeriana - mine has no yellow on the top of the falls. Thanks for the 'clue' though!

Isn't it difficult - so many of them have minute differences!

Is it Clairette Spritz ? Lemondog has one very similar to this.
