You own a mountain???? Really?? Well, now I know where I'm going to move to.

Kentucky Dept of Fish and Wildlife list Iris versicolor as a native, and do refer to it as blue flag.

I also see quite a bit of reference to versicolor in Kentucky when I google it. Versicolor and virginica are so hard to distinguish it's no wonder there is confusion. The only difference between versicolor and virginica is that virginica has hairs on it's signals and the standards and falls are the same size, where versicolor has longer falls.

My reference book I've found to be most accurate and up to date is Irises by Claire Austin, and she states versicolor is native into Texas and Florida and in between.

So, when you go, Sharon, look to see if the yellow signals on the iris are hairy, LOL.
