Lavender and Peach/Pink Iris - can anyone identity?

bluebonnet338April 21, 2014

I had a new iris bloom this year and did not match the bulb I thought I planted in this location. I like the colors of it and I was wondering if anyone knew its name.

Here is a link that might be useful: Unidentified Lavender and Peach/Pink Iris

This is a toughie. More close-ups may help. Did you buy this and from whom? Purchase price might help narrow the field. If given to you how many years had the person owned it?

I can see there is light bounce on the falls which my camera does also. Try shooting it at different times to get the most accurate color. Does looks like there's a fair amount of contrast between the standards & falls.

I'll go thru my files. It's one of my favorite combos.

Thanks for looking at the pic. It was not an expensive bulb - purchased it at Lowe's or Home Depot a couple of years ago. It is no longer blooming so I can not get a better pic from this year. But, here is a pic from last year that is a little closer.

More beautiful. Almost looks like a different iris. It's gorgeous!
I do believe it is 'Celebration Song'. Does that ring a bell? It won the Dykes Medal in 2004 and became widely available. So that fits with Lowe's or Home Depot.

Here are the names before closeup pic. I am very dubious about them now.

I'm betting Celebration Song, I've seen it for sale before at Lowes.

Thanks for the help in identification. I saved all the tags from the irises that I bought and "Celebration Song" is not one of them. But, it sure does look close to it. Since I am new to growing irises, I buy them at the end of the season sales at Home Depot and Lowe's so I can "practice" on less expensive bulbs. I have gotten some blooms that do not match the packages but they are still very pretty. I am just happy when I get them to bloom!

Bluebonnet..Please find you a reputable iris seller..Lowes,Home Dept and other big box stores are famous for selling the wrong irises. You can find some sellers that sell their older stock at very reasonable prices.
Or look up your local Iris Society, they usually hold sales from the club members gardens. They are often reasonable priced also.
