Dear All: Several weeks ago Judy Glattstein described some lovely, fragrant, blue-flowered bearded iris she had seen. Among the suggestions made with respect to a possible identity was Iris pallida. Perhaps some of you do not know this long-cultivated plant. I've posted a photo of one Iris pallida variant to the wiki; please take a look at: http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… If you are fairly new to gardening, and to irises in particular, you may well feel daunted by the possibilities. Try to find a place for Iris pallida, if only for its fragrance.
