OK so I've waited five years to ask this question, however the iris in question is too nice to throw out, and it grows & blooms beautifully! Anyone have a clue as to who this might be? Here are three pictures with fairly accurate colors. The beard is what I call 'old gold'. All help is appreciated.
Thank You!

That looks a lot like the 'Men in Black' Iris

Thanks Ladies! Really appreciate your help with this one. Like I said in the post it's too nice to discard. I tend to agree: 'Men In Black' looks like what I've got. Once again
Thank You!
You are all helpful. Tee, Thanks for the complement. Smiling
