Not Stepping Out?

Last summer I posted a picture of what I thought was 'Stepping Out'. Someone kindly informed me that I was mistaken... So, the search goes on. It's been in the garden since '98 or '99.. I can't remember if I dug it up from my old place when I moved... Most likely, it was an impulse buy in a little mesh bag at someplace like OSH... It's usually the first among the modern TB's to bloom and does so over a long period. 34" tall, nice scent.
Some possibilities:
Rare Treat, Classic Look, Blue Stacatto (too tall?)

Here's another to give you an idea of how it grows.. Any help appreciated.

RE: Not Stepping Out?

I think it is 'Classic Look', but it could be 'Rare Treat'. RT is usually more ruffled. I grow 'Classic Look' and mine is about to bloom right now too.
That's a spectacular clump.

RE: Not Stepping Out?

Thank-you Renee, you always give such good feedback..

This is the picture I was looking for earlier.. This is truly my favorite iris.. It goes with everything... Here w/ Rose 'Radio Days'.

RE: Not Stepping Out?

Gorgeous- it looks like Classic Look. Here's a photo of a clump I used to have. I pulled all purple out of my garden one year, then regretted it, and had to buy 'Classic Look' all over again. It's just starting to turn back into a clump.

RE: Not Stepping Out?

Oh that's nice Renee.. I found an old picture you posted of Classic Look on the forum, and one someone else posted. I think that's what it is.. Good call.
Is that Calla 'Green Goddess' next to it? Always wanted to get that.. So many plants, so little time....

RE: Not Stepping Out?

Really nice combination with the pink roses and grape vine. I will have to try that myself!
