ID Iris seed head
Tue, 19 Mar 2013 18:29:13 PDT

I have done a bit of detective work here and rang the Auckland Botanic 
Gardens this morning regarding the seed you collected.  Yvonne Baker 
(Botanical Records Officer) told me that they do not have
iris laevigata in the garden  but they do have several iris ensata hybrids 
in their collection.   You should get some nice seedlings out of the mix 
with the open pollination.  Should you require more seed please
contact me privately as I have just collected from last seasons bloom.

Kind regards,

Darlene Cook

In which case, I was just now reading, that if it is, it likes water
even more than the ensata ones.  Will keep that in mind.  Thankyou
Peterand everyone who responded.
