I planted several of our native Iris missouriensis in the garden over the past few years and this is the first one to bloom. You'll see these growing wild alongside of streams in the San Bernardino Mountains. Ours are growing around the giant rock bird-bath near the solar waterfall.

Can you please explain why it's closed up? Or has it 'gone by' already?

My japanese iris blooms for approx. 3 - 4 days.
