Iris bucharica 'Dushanbe'

 Shown here, photographed on April 20, 2002, the plant began
flowering while still short of growth, only 6" (15 cm), no doubt
spurred into flower after some suddenly hot weather. This 
selection is probably named after Dushanbe, Central Asia,
where the plant grows on dry grassy hills.

Below is a photo snapped in April 2001 in which more even
spring temperatures, and at later anthesis, resulted in the
growth elongating and reaching 12" (30 cm) or a little more.
