A NEW IRIS SUBSPECIES

A NEW IRIS SUBSPECIES

Iris reticulata ssp. isikgunerae

Back in February 2019, we had a sweet expedition to Kahramanmaraş to look for an Iris species which was possibly a new subspecies. Finally the article about this new subspecies is published and now it is called;

Iris reticulata subsp. isikgunerae

ışık navruzu

 

You may guess how happy I am as such a delicate plant is named after me. We have now the same name with this beautiful plant that I illustrated back in 2019.
