Need Iris ID please

Hi, this is an older Iris, perhaps an historical variety, as it was growing at my previous house - planted by the previous owner about 40 years ago.

It is a tall bearded Iris and very vigorous. I love it and have given away tons of it.

Does anybody know if this is a named cultivar? Thanks so much.

I don't know the name, but you may want to look at Carlos' site, Brighton Park Iris. He grows historic irises and has a wonderful site to browse around in (in which to browse around?). He also has great links to places to buy irises, and many of those have photo catalogs.

Wow, so many gorgeous Irises on those websites! Beautiful! The Brighton park website has excellent quality photos and they are a pleasure to look at. But I didn't see this one there.

Also checked out the historic Iris website and think I found it. One called Pinnacle - not 100% sure but it looks like it matches.

I think you're right!
Good find. It's so hard to ID irises, since there are so many. Yours is a real beauty- I am partial to clear yellow and white.

One reason, among many, that I like the Brighton Park page is because of the descriptions of the various iris sellers on the links page. Carlos tells you if the seller is into historics, recent intros, etc. as well as his personal experience with the company. So helpful.
