CAn't help with the name, but it is gorgeous!

I only saw 2 pics online and they didn't have the fluting of yours.

What a combination to die for!

Yes, the combination! That peony is exactly what peonies should be. Thanks for posting the photo. I get my peony fix on Gardenweb.

I looked up coastal mist and it shows the falls as being almost white. this iris has standards and falls of the same color.

It's a very heavy bloomer.

PS - for peony pics, check out this album of mine:

gottagarden: I looked at your peony page and they're awesome! They look great along the laneway. Congrats on a job well done. I love the peony with the blue and white iris. I noticed your Karl Rosenfeldt was also dark. Mine has always been more dark pink. This year it has turned dark like yours. Hope it stays that way. Marg

Check out 'Codicil'.

RE: Is this the prince of tides? very pale blue

Yes!! You are so amazing, iris gal!

I remembered this iris as "coda" but google searching showed me that no iris "coda" existed. I guess my memory is dropping things, because the full name is codicil.
So glad I now have the name back for this beauty.

thanks!

So glad you got back to this post. I knew I knew that iris! Accidently stumbled upon the name & went Yes ~~ my memory too!!

Codicil is a fantastic iris, so beautiful. And I just love your peonies too. You are very skilled with colours....

Woo hoo Irisgal!

Sorry to rain on the parade, but that's definitely not Codicil. Codicil's most prominent feature is its very dark navy blue beards, which your iris doesn't have. It's possible that whoever you got it from thought it was Codicil, but unfortunately it's not.

See link below - it's a pretty common iris, so there are lots of pictures out on the web.
