>Spring Find


I took my camera out to the woods last night to snap some shots of the daffodils. I love it when I find something like this volunteer, which appears to be some sort of dwarf iris. If you know what it is, please let me know in the comments.

  2. >Stefanie, Thanks so much for the horticultural identification. It always amuses me when I find something that has probably been transplanted by a squirrel, after having been removed from one of the well-groomed gardens of my neighbors. That is probably the most likely way this appeared in my wooded yard. I’m glad that I get to enjoy it!

  3. >That would be exactly what you called it, a dwarf or miniature iris–iris reticulata. A lovely photo and what a nice thing to come upon while walking in the woods.
