Dwarf Lake Iris is blooming in Presque Isle!

Today I had the pleasure of searching for dwarf lake iris populations with Vicki McCoy, LafargeHolcim/Presque Isle Quarry's Environmental Specialist. Our first spot was a bust, but later we relocated a population that hadn't been visited by MNFI or its partners since 1989! On top of that, it was the first blooming dwarf lake iris that I had seen this season. We visited several more blooming populations on Quarry property, then I headed to Besser Natural Area and Rockport State Recreation Area to check up on some other populations.

Vicki and I both thought much of the dwarf lake iris, including that which was blooming, was smaller than usual, especially the leaves. Has anyone else made such observations?
