Unknown species of Iris
If anyone knows what species of Iris these are, please let me know on my talk page. Image:Buberel unknown flower 2.jpg and Image:Buberel unknown flower 5.jpg. Thanks, – Quadell (talk) (help)[] 18:33, Dec 2, 2004 (UTC)

Iris Latifolia /English Iris name confusion
I've added a link and a stub entry for Irish latifolia, which appears to be the same as I. xiphiodes, I. anglica, and also known as English Iris. It would be good to have cleared up this confusion. Does anybody know the truth on this matter? Jens Nielsen 20:15, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
Just started a page for it... anyone know which category it's supposed to fit into? SB Johnny 18:34, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

There is a link on the disambiguation page Sea Patrol which reads:
I was hoping to point this to an article on the specific variety, if one exists, to avoid the need for external links on a disambiguation page. I've scanned the list and I can't find an obvious link which would suit, which is why I'm posting here, calling on someone more knowledgeable to assist! -- Chuq (talk) 08:52, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
There's a horrible section of text in the last paragraph of the description section. It reads,
- The shape of the flower and the position of the pollen-receiving and stigmatic surfaces on the outer petals form a landing-stage for a flying insect, which in probing the perianth for nectar, will first come in contact of perianth, three with the stigmatic stamens in one whorl surface which is borne and an ovary formed of three carpels. The shelf-like transverse projection on the inner whorl under side of the stamens, which is beneath the over-arching style arm below the stigma, so that the insect comes in contact with its pollen-covered surface only after passing the stigma, while in backing out of the flower it will come in contact only with the non-receptive lower face of the stigma.
Does anyone understand what it's trying to say, who can clean it up? I don't really follow it, there is much run-on, and some of it just plain grammatically incorrect. Thanks. -Freekee 16:25, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
How many years does a plant live?
If irises are perennial (i.e. they come back each year after they seem to die in the winter), how many years will a single plant last before it eventually dies? Badagnani 23:08, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
- You'll have to find a source which states how long that is. Notice the article says the plants grow from rhizomes, so one plant can spread and create many clones. Maybe you also have to consider the boundaries of the meanings of "plant" or "live". (SEWilco 02:39, 13 October 2007 (UTC))
The article says some irises reproduce from bulbs. By bulb does it mean "corm"? Flower growers call corms and tubers bulbs, but boatanists distinguish the three. Randall Bart Talk 01:22, 14 December 2007 (UTC)tennessee floer
Will a bearded iris flower more than once?
Once a bearded iris has flowered, will removing the flower ensure it flowers again? Please advise what I should do once the flower looks as though it may have died. Thanks! Bernie —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:44, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
- It not flower again until next year, unless more flower buds are around. Removing the flower only keep it looking 'neat'.DavidAnstiss (talk) 11:43, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Fleur de lis
- It can mean both iris (normally the wild flag iris) and lily depending on the family using the crest. DavidAnstiss (talk) 11:47, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
The species illustrated in the taxobox is not the purple bearded iris Iris germanica as stated but more probably a cultivar of Iris versicolor. A clue is in the total absence of the beard which characterizes the bearded irises. Plantsurfer (talk) 12:02, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
