The flower and foliage looks like Siberian but the rhizome says no. Not sure at all.

Most pure sanguinea types have red rhizomes, so that's what I'm guessing. The nickname for it is blood iris.

C., I will do the database later, but I love how it has a French flair in the description, so I'm not changing that.

More information about the iris with red rhizome. Growing in dry and very poor soil. Does it help and is it the case of sanguinea Polly.
If you like the French flair Polly OK.
Have to look up for the sanguinea. Thantks to you all and if somebody grows this one..

Thank you

I have tried those off & on. They didn't work out, so we may not have the best climate for them.

Hi Clusiana, I grow the yellow form of tigridia and it is winter hardy here. The lowest winter temperature that I recall was around 18 deg. F (-8 C). I've had them for about 5 years in the same place. I was surprised they kept coming back each year. No mulch but they are planted just a few inches from the foundation of the house.

Hello Pardalinum. Great to see your yellow form of Tigridia. We are having the same climate here, it is very rare when temperatures are lowing down lower than in your place. I am in town and the friend who gave me those is living in the mountains so mau be they can be hardy here. Besides if yours are planted a few inches from the foundation of the house may be they are getting heat from the stones.
Hurray! Are they flowering now too? Here they were supposed to bloom in July but I stil have buds. Amazing plant isn't?

Yes, mine are flowering now. Each bloom doesn't last very long. They do form seed pods and you can get seeds from them.

I found France to be much like the Pacific Northwest when I vacationed there in 1985. It was raining when we landed in Paris in late June.

Beautiful C.! Nice to see you back posting.

Hello Pardalinum, hello Polly
So glad to know that Tigridia are setting seeds Pardalinum. As it is the very firtst time I have these plants I was waiting and wondering.
So you have been dancing in the rain in Paris in 1985. I was living there at the time; I really miss Paris. I hope you enjoyed it. Isn't the most beautiul town in the world? I have no idea of hte climate in some parts of the world and it is changing all around. No more true winters, summers either you are baked either you are freezing, not a drop during months and months but more and more floods (we were not used to these terrible things which happen in your country). Now we have big sttorms which are destroying everything even in Paris in 1999, the roofs were flying away. You were in the right place at the right time. June is a beautiul month to travel and hope you have been able at the time to visit all the beautiful gardens (at least the Tuileries Garden.

Does any of you has an idea? This iris looks quite strange to me. Coming out from a small rhizome, roots seems to be out of rings and the foliage looks like the one of the sibiirica.
Growing wild on the edge of a ditch. I saw it blooming once during the summer, the flower were blue. Does not sem to bloom this year.
Your comments will be greatly appreciated, as usual.
Thank you

I have done a small order to this provider for the following irises
Germanica alba
Germanica kharput
Germanica nepalensis
Germanica mesopotamica

These are sold at a very reasonnable price, not expensive in my opinion and this order hardly reach the amount of 50 dollars. In spite of this Ireceived a huge bonus including three more irises mesopotamica and two more nepalensis.

Have a look to the website of Lawrence RANSOM. English version is availablle too.

And I did some pics to show you the amazing rhizomes I have received.
