A friend has these Japanese Iris growing in his garden. All but this one had the correct name. Can you help ID this one?

thank you

I really hesitate to put out guesses ~ who knows how accurate the photos are I've seen. But 2 photo I've seen that resemble yours are Rose Tower and Wine Ruffles.

Have you looked at the online nurseries? Good luck.

Just saw a photo at Ensata of the real Rose Tower -- very different that the photo I'd saved.

Found a neat site with small pics many of which remind me of yours.

Thank you, iris_gal.
I'll ask the owner to compare and see what he thinks.

Fun looking for this. Magic Ruby at Sans Souci looks even more like it.

Placed side-by-side on my monitor, the photo taken of the unlabeled Iris matched the photo of Magic Ruby.
Thank you!

It looks a lot like mine which was purchased last year. Of course, I am useless because I cannot remember the name. I may have the tag at home.

Now that I see them together, I notice subtle differences.
