Has anyone heard of an Iris camphorii?

On plant Iris



Sorry, I haven't - and neither has the RHS Plant Finder website.

Hi guest,

where did you find this Iris name?

There is no species of Iris with that name, although there are a few plants with the specific epithet camphori, the most obvious of which is Cinnamomum camphori - the plant from which Camphor is derived. There's also a Hoya camphori and a Pestalotia camphori, but that's about it.

Barbara Knox Shaw of Fresh Woods in Elgin has the iris camphori in her garden .
