No, these are unknown historic iris I got from Zuzu. When I get back on my laptop, I'll find a couple of full shots of it and post them here. I think there was one possibility of a name that was considered, will have to find that too.

Looks a lot like Lent A. Williamson, which is reported to be the "most commonly found noid in the US, by some estimates. Found across the country, often thriving in neglect." http://www.hips-roots.com/photos/lent-a-williamson-sdt.html

The other one it reminded me of was Alcazar.
