She is in a fairly shady spot, she is supposed to be Edith Wolford but I am just not really sure. Any input?

Similar color, but I would say not.

I don't really think so either but that is how she was tagged. However, I think that one came for Lowes so you know how those "big box" things go!

Color aside (since cameras can differ) I would say that Edith Wolford is more deeply ruffled than yours, Lori. Mine is blooming now and looks like the real thing. It also came from a big box (before I knew better).

No Bigbox for me.There are good prices on great vendors sites.A few bucks more for much better selection.

Oh trust me, I have learned my lesson! No more big box and very, very selective trading. I have discovered not all traders are honest which is too bad because I like to trade. Thumbs down

This is what I purchased as Edith Wolford. For years it didn't bloom because of an overhanging pine tree. The tree went down a year ago January and now, as you can see, this iris is happier than ever!

Connie, that is a great shot of a very pretty bloom.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
