I think that the last picture may be 'Flavescens', 30" E (1813)
What do you think?

Middle one is likely Eleanor Roosevelt. Crimson King is similar

Last one does look like Flavescens.

I love that iris!

The Bright Purple Iris is 33" tall. My iris seem to run at or under the given measurement of the named example. So, I'm not sure that it's an IB. It does look like Crimson King in one picture that I found. I think that this Iris may be newer, based on where I got them.

Thanks for your help!
Penny
