My first guess is 'Jeri' (Bertinot'84). It won the 1994 DeBallion Award.

My 2nd guess is 'Full Eclipse' (Hager'77).

Good purchase!

RE: Iris id please.

Thanks Iris Gal.This iris is soooo beautiful.I got it in a large pot for$15.00.I looked up the two irises and it looks more like Jeri.It's a La iris and I guess they like lots of water.I don't water heavily so would it be a good idea to let the pot sit in plastic saucer filled with water?Thanks again!

I have a potted one in a child's plastic sled. LOL
