June 11, 2013: Blue Flag Iris

I believe that this is a Blue Flag Iris, found at the south end of Pond J, with a few more along the west side of Pond M.  The flowers resemble the domestic iris, but has segments that are both more slender and smaller.  The flower is composed of 3 petals, 3 sepals, and 3 petal-like branches of the style.  6/8/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
