Can someone ID this Iris?

Hello everyone,
I found these irses when I first moved into this house. They must have been part of an old flower bed. I moved them and this is what bloomed - does someone know the name?

My 'Frank Adams' opened yesterday and looks just like your iris. There may well be others that look similar.


RE: Can someone ID this Iris?

It looks just like that! My house was built in 1941 and I was reading that it was introduced in 1937. I'd like to think that the iris has been there that long. :) The people before me did no landscaping at all, but I know there was a widow in the house originally before it went through a stream of renters.

thanks so much!
