ID of purple iris...

TNY78(7a-East TN)May 4, 2013

Hello, one of my coworkers gave me quite a few of her iris last year and I'm trying to get potential IDs on them. They were all named iris from a lady that sells them here in Knoxville, but she didn't have them labled and forgot which varieties they are. Any ideas? This is the first one to bloom....Thanks :)

Any idea what variety this very light Purple Iris is?

Here is a link that might be useful: Purple Irises?

It will be very hard to correctly id this iris. There are so many of this coloring. I have one like it and even though I have a list of the irises I bought then, I have been unable to correctly id it. I finally just put it in a corner and just enjoy it as is!
