Help with Iris ID
My mother-in-law passed a bunch of iris rhizomes to me and my wife in 2010 (I think). Her mother in Kentucky had given a bunch of them to her some time back, and we got the surplus again after I don't know how many years of increase.
Anyway, this is the first bloom on any of them. 2010 and 2011 were bad drought years here, and I'm coming to realize Houston isn't the favorite place for TB iris to live.
The bloom is about 3" tall and about 3" wide. The color is pretty representative -- a lightish purple. I didn't measure the height, but it's under two feet (possibly not representative). It would have had 3 buds, but two seem to have withered.
Based on their origin, I'm guessing this cultivar is at least a few decades old and probably pretty common. I'm attaching two photos.
