Both of these are found in Himachal Pradesh at about 10000 ft. but in different locations. Are they of same sp.?

I think the first one is Iris goniocarpa, while the 2nd one is Iris milesii.

I was at Great Himalayan National Park between 10 to 14th May, 2009.
I took this picture there,it is grass family I assume. I took photos of many flowers, but I like this one most.
Kindly give ID.

It is an Iris, seems to be a horticultural var.

This could be Iris milesii, native to the Himalayas.

definitrly an iris but cannot give the variety.

iris sanguinea?

Looking at various photos on google, this looks closer to milesii, as … mentioned earlier. Also because it is native to the Himalayas.
Pls excuse the two-pice bit from a novice!
