Iris japonica in China Valley
We have several large drifts of this species iris visible from the path. Carole tells me that it has been around for many years and this is the first time it has bloomed!?! Possibly the buds aren't cold hardy here and survived because this winter was so warm. Or maybe it's just my green thumb?
