Is it possible to id from the picture?

I have an unknown iris I bought from Wallmart on sale 2 years ago as a half-dead stick with no tag. It is grown since then significantly and formed a good-sized clump. Now I'd like to know what exactly did I get?
Is it possible to identify it from the picture?

Getting an id from pictures will depend upon the accuracy of the photos and the distinctiveness of the iris. All additional information helps. Like height, bloom date, year purchased and from where, purple based foliage, etc. For absolute positive id the proposed one is planted next to the no-id one. They will be a genetic match right down to branching and opening.

'Orinoco Flow' looks a lot like yours. It's very distinctive but there certainly could be a look-alike with, what, over 60,000 registered iris? Think that's the figure I've heard.

Lovely display.
