Iris ID Please

We were given this iris a number of years ago and were told it's a "walking iris" however I have my doubts. The root system is pretty distinctive but I cant't seem to find any pictures of similar iris via Google.

Have they bloomed for you?

It looks like Louisiana iris to me. What color is the flower?

Thanks for the response. It does appear to be L iris. It hasn't bloomed in its current location (wet clay) but in the past in a drier spot it had purple flowers. I'll add some fertilizer and see what happens.
Sorry about the double post. For some reason I couldn't put two photos on the same post.

SquireJohn ~ if you do a google search on walking iris you will see bloom pics. Their bloom is quite different than a Louisiana's.

When I'm putting in more than 2 pics I use a Wordpad doc. to paste into first, then I copy the completed message and paste it into this message box.
