I've had this one for several years; can someone help identify her?

Difficult to ID from a photo & it should be fully open so form & color can really be seen.

As Lucy said, it is very difficult to ID from a photo. It is very pretty but there are many pinks that are very similar. Just grow it and enjoy it.

One of our fun test for judging was 5 pink iris with same color beard, slight differences all cut the same height. Had a list of 10-15 names to pick from NO ONE got it correct best was 3 correct

D

Also computer screens, difference in PH of soil difference of many factors cause problems, what I would suggest you call it peach unknown and love it

I agree , but I'll add this...clearly mark this iris as an unknown, or noid, or someting, and DONT just pick a name from an iris catalog, and call it that. That just "muddies up the water" for all those that you pass it on to. I've got lot of NOIDs and love 'em all, and while putting a name to one is nice...it ain't everything !...Arlyn I tip my hat to you.
