Iris vicaria

Iris vicaria   copyright  2002 Mark McDonough 

 Growing about 14"-16" tall (35 - 40 cm) in flower, this species is said
to always be a pale blue color.  Not as showy as some of the other
Juno iris, and having a tendency for the stems to splay sideways,
it compensates by being a prolific grower forming dense clumps
and quantities of delicate flowers.

In the photo below, taken on a drier day, the color seems
quite accurate... a lovely pale amethyst with near white falls.
