iris with an identity crisis. i grew a pot of iris reticulata this spring and had a good show of sweet little dark blue iris. i left them to rot down and the leaves continued to grow. however I now have a pot of tall yellow iris in their place which came into flower a few days ago. what is going on?

Never heard of this before. Sorry, no idea.

Maybe they were mixed in with the reticulata corms somehow. Are they definitely coming from the same bulb ?

these sound like dutch iris. the bulb/corm are very similar so I suspect there are two types in the pot. they cant change from one species to another.

can you post a photo.
