Heres my one and only 'I', Irisene, and annual similar to coleus. It roots easily to winter over in the house.

Koot, your unknown looked very familiar to me. I saw a picture of it in the Dominion Seed catalogue. It is Astilboides Tabularis. Doesn't exactly roll of the tongue, does it, lol.

Wow...Superstition is really dark! I agree...would look great with orange. I planted several new iris last year so should have some nice 'i' pics for next year's soup. Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous Iris being shown. Love them all. I'm particularly drawn to the Dwarf Iris, Katharine Hodgkin. I must look out for that one.
