Thank you. Ann

I believe it is a bearded iris.

RE: What type of Iris?

I'm guessing one of the beardless. You are going to post the open bloom, no?

RE: What type of Iris?

The mystery Iris bloomed today. It is more purple than the photo shows. Ann

Looks like reticulata

RE: What type of Iris?

Ah haaa. A siberian it is.

Some iris flowers do resemble one another. A reticiulata wouldn't be this tall or have the distinctive fall 'spray' pattern.
