Iris delavayi #5 of 6

Credits: Iris delavayi, Ken Walker; 2016 June 10; Kew Gardens, London, England (Ken Walker, 20-JUL-16)

Comments: Specimen number 1990-3549. Close up of previous photo. I think the deflexed falls are unusual for this species. (Ken Walker, 20-JUL-16)

I ment "deflexed standards". (Ken Walker, 20-JUL-16)

Here is a comment from iris-species@yahoogroups.com made by Tony Hall (currently retired from Kew) about this photo: "This is original Iris delavayi and not from garden-raised seed. In my opinion it is fairly representative of the species, if a little pale-flowered. It was collected by Kit Grey-Wilson in Yunnan many years ago" (Ken Walker, 13-OCT-16)
