From the Garden in the Woods in Framingham, Massachusetts, on June 12th, here’s a flower and then a leaf of a blue iris, Iris versicolor. (Of course I see the flower as purple, not blue.)

A closer look at a Rocky Mountain iris

with 13 comments

In the last post you saw a large colony of Rocky Mountain irises (Iris missouriensis) in northern New Mexico. The first time I encountered the species was on June 30th, when I found a smaller and less dense group of these irises in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The one shown here was in the process of opening.
