Help ID this Iris

plantgnome(6b//7)May 16, 2012

I planted this about 7 years ago and lost the tag-can anyone help me ID the name of it?

Here is a link that might be useful: Iris

Could be Rustler( a little dark on the falls, may be the lighting)

It could be, but I don't know. Take a look at Cherokee Nation, Copatonic, Rustler, Cayenne Capers, Bad Cad, Masai Warrior, Burnt Crisp, and Witch of Endor. There are others as well- it's so hard to tell these apart (for me, anyway). I think Rustler is a bit redder, but I don't grow it.

Hi hosenemesis
I checked all those that you listed and most are too red especially the falls, Burnt Crisp is too yellowish, Cayenne Capers has very speckled falls. The only one close is Copatonic whose parent was Rustler. Thanks for your info tho.
