Lemon Pop Intermediate Bearded Iris

 The Intermediate Bearded Iris are starting to bloom now.  They are called Intermediate because their bloom time falls between the Dwarf Iris and Tall Bearded iris.  They are also of an intermediate height - shorter and smaller than the Tall Bearded iris, but taller and larger than the dwarfs.

This Lemon Pop flower has extra falls and standards.  Unusual, but reportedly caused by extreme weather fluctuations when the flower is forming.  It was introduced in 1990 by Lauer.
