Iris foetidissima is variable with blue flowers or yellow but most often

are nothing like the seed pods of PCIs. If the seeds correspond then you
almost certainly have I foetidissima, the only Iris species I can think of
with similar seeds have black seeds. I believe the colour of the flowers
corresponds to the wild location of the material if forms have not been
