Iris sibirica?

I'm wondering if this is Iris sibirica...... I can't show you a picture of the group as only one is permitted per question (I think) but it is quite a large group of densely packed, tall plants with narrow leaves and the flowers are smaller than the usual iris.




Yes, I think it is. The leaves should be quite narrow and very vertical. It likes moist soil and looks great by a pond.

It is Iris siberica as Volunteer says it grows well by water. At Kew they are grown in the woodland garden.Nice plants.

Although it prefers moist soil, it is very tolerant. Mine grow in clay soil at the top of the garden quite happily
