Sometimes listed Kashmiriana or Kasmir I. in old literature


Pale lilac-blue or white; white beard tipped yellow; fragrant. Similar to I. albicans. Distinct long, narrow green spathes, which remain green until the flower has faded. Both diploid and tetraploid forms of this variety are found growing in the same areas. Native to regions of Kashmir, Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran.

Comment: “I’ve grown this thing, and it’s just a dark blue bitone diploid–hardly a species. There’s a lot of confusion surrounding kashmiriana, but the form used in breeding to produce Kashmir White and Miss Willmott was a white tetraploid.” – Phil Edinger
