Tall Bearded Iris 'Carnaby'

Tall Bearded Iris 'Carnaby' (Iris germanica (Orris))

Seems like this is going to be the last different Bearded Iris variety to flower this year, although there are still flowers on the varieties already shown still opening.

Haven't seen this since I divided it and Chantilly and stupidly put them in the same bucket, so didn't know which was which. Luckily I've located one of each this year.

That great you ve located one of each. You ll have to get different coloured string or bands around them next time to remind you which is which.

3pb, Its not that easy, the total green top dies off in Autumn, shedding its identification tag. If I dig a. clump up I try to write in marker pen on the lower leaf, but this might turn out to be an intruded next clump bit.
