😋 My neighbours have Pauline so I didn't think yours looked similar to theirs. Still full of cold but back at work 😕 Wish I could stay in bed and hope for Pudgy to come and join me 😌

@ublaszko it looks so different when taken on a proper camera to my phone 😜 can see why there’s lots of confusion when it comes to id-ing things 🤪 I bet she would have come snuggled eventually 😛

Thanks for the recommendation Ruth ☺️ @sushiwaitress I’m not certain but could be ‘George’. Rich might know 🧐 @richard.spicer.7906

ublaszko

I reckon it's 'JS Dijt'. Same markings and colours as the one Jacqueline posted this morning. 'George' has yellow stripe on the falls. This looks orange. Also, 'George' is a rarer variety so less likely to be found in a mix of random colours. 'JS Dijt' seems more common and even Wilko stocked them last autumn. @awomanonabike @kez001uk

@kez001uk @awomanonabike @sushiwaitress I can't seem to be able to copy Rich's comment on how to ID 'George' and 'JS Dijt' but if you scroll to the previous picture and down the list of comments you'll see it. Basically, JS Dijt grows foliage and flowers at the same time and the flowers do not stand above the foliage like some of the other varieties. So, this is most likely JS Dijt 😥😁

I thought it looked just like the flower you posted this morning 😁 Sometimes there's variation on the photos depending on the sun. The pictures of 'George' in the encyclopedia link are different from what it actually looks like 😅 @awomanonabike

That's a great selection! Looks like you got some 'Harmony' (darker ones) and 'Clairette' (lighter ones) 💙💜💛

@ublaszko I was secretly waiting on you to ID them 😛 thank you Urszula 😁 I know there’s at least one more variety in here but it’s really different. If you scroll back to the beginning of these irises it’s a tiny deep purple one. Very strange looking too 😜

I'm not 100% sure but it might be JS Dijt. I'll take some photos once my ones are in flower so we can compare them. And the good news is I didn't buy them from Wilko so they might actually be the right label 😁😁👍

Take more pics of it so you can compare the detail with pictures online. I think it's too dark for George, judging by this picture and Pauline which is also very dark violet doesn't have the yellow-orangey markings on the folds.

I dug them up when they were in flower to reposition them in the display last year 😂😂 OCD much. Bulbs can be tricky to flower every year and these dwarf irises are known to be a bit unreliable. I should really add plenty of grit when I plant them but I can only buy grit on Amazon 😰
