Iris sp for ID from Badrinath Uttarakhand: June 2014_DSR_11 : 6 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (5)
This Iris species was photographed in a flower bed of Indian army.
Plants are 10-15 inches tall. Never seen it in wild in Uttarakhand; probably cultivated species.
Please suggest the ID.
This is the first time i see this beautiful flower of an unknown genus. One hort. named as "LORELEY" looks similar. But size should be a little large (a cm or two would fit- http://content.ces.ncsu.edu/bearded-iris-for-the-home-landscape.pdf !). But there is closely looking cultivar too which are unidentified - https://sites.google.com/site/picklebarrelhouseirisgarden/home/unidentified-irises (please scroll below to see look alike). Perhaps these are all originated from Iris germanica L.
Yes ... Your links suggest it as Iris x germanica L. and I now feel that it is a cultivated plant only.
I think it should be Iris variegata- efi thread

I also have some of my specimens under I. germanica (may be wrongly). This should help
I. germanica: Flowering stems longer than leaves; leaves 3-4 cm wide; perianth tube 2.5 cm long.
I. variegata: Flowering stems shorter or equalling leaves; leaves 2 cm wide; perianth tube 2 cm long
Thank you ... This thread introduces me to a new genus (though I have a copy of Polunin & Stainton!). Now, it appears to me it is closer to ... id, at least as per height of the plant (besides those differences keyed in by Sir) - http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/files/Iris/Iris_Summary.pdf 
Interestingly, as per FoNA and KEW Iris x germanica itself is a hybrid of I. variegata and KEW thinks the former is a low growing one with many cultivars.

Iris germanica from Kashmir, one of the most popular species grown in a variety of colour combinations. Photographed from Gulmarg on June 20, 2010
Common Names: German flag, German Iris

Nice catch Sir ji, probably this plant was uploaded by Nalini Ji a month ago.
Yes ..., a very common plant
I think it should be Iris variegata L. as per images herein.
