Iris albertii

Iris albertii Regel is from Central Asiatic Russia (particularly in the Tien Shan and Fergana mountains), on grassy slopes at 1700-2000 m. The flowers are around 6-8 cm across, lavender to purple-violet with brownish-red veining on the haft of the falls. It blooms in early summer, to around 30-60 cm tall. Culture seems to be the same as most bearded irises with perhaps a special emphasis on good drainage. Also, see this species on the American Iris Society wiki: Iris albertii.
