Elevation: 2300 m.
Habit : Wild
According to the latest checklist Iris kemaonensis Wall. ex Royle, Iris collettii Hook.f. and  Iris decora Wall. have got the matching elevation and we can opt out the Iris kemaonensis Wall. ex Royle., but petal markings look different to two other species.

Looks like an Iris species.


Pattern doesn’t seem to match with anything at
Was it near habitation? If so, maybe some hybrid.

There are a couple of houses in the distance. Maybe a garden escape?

Yes, possible.

Iris variegata var. reginae (Horvat & M.D.Horvat) T.Hall ??

I do not think so.

Any guesses ??

No guesses.
