20. Its Dutch Iris

That is what I have heard them called. I have planted them in my garden before. Don't have any now, but my snowdrops are blooming, haven't looked but should have dog-tooth violets blooming too. I had a crew clean-out my vegetable garden last year, I told them to cut down the grape arbor, but they cut down my 30 year old wisteria. It has no leaves at all, it must be done for.

Let me recall my Botany classes ... Hugh_Lebowski Mar 2021 #1

All my bulbs are coming up. Daffodils were first, then some crocuses, no sign of my tulips yet. Treefrog Mar 2021 #6
My tulips are poking up through the earth. Hyacinth is finally showing, too. Siwsan Mar 2021 #7
I love spring when all the bulbs come up again. Truly nature's magic. Something we can count on. Treefrog Mar 2021 #9

After having a not-uncommon early start to Spring, the season seemed to crawl back under the covers. BobTheSubgenius Mar 2021 #13

The wisteria may surprise you with new shoots from the old root system. Be patient :) Donkees Mar 2021 #28
They look similar, however the OP shows Iris Reticulata, not Iris hollandica (Dutch Iris) Dark n Stormy Knight Mar 2021 #29
