Iris setosa (Iris setosa (Beachhead Iris))

Thought this was Baby Blue, it is the purest white.

Can they change colour Siris? My 'Baby Blue' is bigger and darker this year and it's never been moved from it's pan. I did split it a couple of years ago though and have a couple of smaller offshoots in a pot. No sign of flowers on them this year.

Thanks Seaburng, I was not aware there was a white setosa.
Thorney, the colour tone can fade during the day, also from year to year how well they have been fed etc, but I wouldn't think from blue to white. I'm not sure mine has flowered before, it's just the label that says Baby Blue, i like it in white.
