OMG! That is Beautiful. I will see if I can help you ID it. Would love to add that one the my collection.

Here is a link that might be useful: Iris Gallery

Compare photos to Border Bearded 'Orinoco Flow'.

Good luck.

I would say no to 'Orinoco Flow'. Here's what I could find:

(I'm seeing white falls without veining and very little lav. tint around the edges. What color are the style arms?)

'Fancy Stitches' in Carolann's photo at Dave's has lav. edges; in rootsnrhizomes' not so much & the beard looks like a better match. Which are true? Maybe this iris varies in its markings?

If it's a rebloomer 'Lady Essex' (Zurbrigg'78) is a possibility. The style arms inside are lavender. From the angle of the photos I can't see if the beard is as yellow as yours halfway up.

I've only seen one picture of 'I'm With You' on iris photos by irislady (Margie) in 2003 but it's a good look-alike. she may have posted it at Dave's.

Check out daylily970's picture of 'Lilac Stitchery' (Jensen'89) on Dave's Gard__. Rebloomer.

'Tea Apron' has same markings --- style arms look more purple than lavender.

That's all I can come up with. Good luck. PS: always a good idea to put some distinctive feature in the title of your post so someone can locate it later --- like "ID for subtle White & Lav plicata".

Sorry for taking so long getting back to you. Tea apron is close but much to large a flower. I also came up with Lilac Stitchery, Need height and bud count to confirm.

Thanks. Tea Apron seems closest but not exactly colour wise.

can you give any history ....

e.g. if it was in grandmas garden for 40 years ... that would limit the names down significantly ...

Ken

It was from a large collection of iris that a friend had for many years and nothing was labelled!
