There are many others on this forum with more experience...but here's my 2 cents:

Tag 07 looks like Jesse's Song

Thumb of 2014-08-30/Moiris/b5b813


Tag 20 looks like Aura Light

Thumb of 2014-08-30/Moiris/4d9251


And Tag 27 might be Honky Tonk Blues

Thumb of 2014-08-30/Moiris/65c255

I hope this helps!

I think Tag 20 is Champagne Elegance:


Thumb of 2014-08-30/Moiris/b6036b


Thumb of 2014-08-30/Moiris/30e3c3

And after looking further I think a better match for Tag 27 is Duncan's Smiling Eyes:


Thumb of 2014-08-30/Moiris/4efdfe


Thumb of 2014-08-30/Moiris/5593c5

These are just my best guess...but wait for the pros to weigh in...I'm relatively new to the iris world!

Thank you Marilyn,
I bought Jesse's Song last year thinking it might be Jesse's Song also. When they both bloomed they were a different shade of purple. The noid was a darker shade than Jesse's Song so if they both bloom this next year I will do another comparison since now they have both been growing in the same conditions for a year.
The falls on Tag 20 are yellow but I will check Champagne Elegance against it.
I will check out Duncan' Smiling Eyes and Honky Tonk Blues also.
Thank you again for your help. I remember someone saying in another thread that the no ids might not ever get identified, but I really want to try!

I understand Barbara. I have some that will probably never be identified either. But it sure is nice when you are able to identify one or two! As someone else said, it's kind of like giving them back their dignity. Good Luck! Marilyn

I took another look at these this evening and 2 of them resemble irises (or is iris the plural form too?) that I have. I know it's a long-shot but here goes:

Tag 20 resembles Dutch Custard:

2008, Van Liere

'Dutch Custard' (Robert Van Liere, R. 2008). Sdlg. 99BT9. TB, 35" (89 cm), M. S. white, faint yellowing over veins; style arms white; F. white overlaid darker yellow; beards orange. 'Violet Dawson' X 'Satan's Mistress'. Tall Bearded Iris Society 2008.


Thumb of 2014-09-04/Moiris/e63fc7


Thumb of 2014-09-04/Moiris/0b7172



and Tag 30 resembles Genteel, a rebloomer

1991, Byers

'Genteel' (Monty Byers, R. 1990). Sdlg. G39-111. TB, 34" (86 cm). Early, midseason, late bloom and rebloom. Heavily ruffled medium blue lilac; beards pale blue, tipped yellow. 'Eternal Bliss' X 'Pacific Tide'. Moonshine 1991.

Note: The color in my photos makes it look much darker that it really is.

I normally wouldn't guess because the chances of being right are so slim, but Tag 20 might possibly be Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Yes'). There aren't all that many yellow amoenas with a tangerine beard like that.

I doubt it is a NoID. I got it years ago (pre 2003) from a nursery box left in a storage locker, with red tulips and the iris. There was paperwork in the box, but at the time, I didn't think names were very important. Actually, since the box was in a not climate controlled storage unit through sweltering summers and frozen winters for 3 years, I didn't think the bulbs and rhizomes were viable.

You might check out "Truly" as a possible. Yours looks like one of Bea Warburton's blues. There were a bunch of those "baby" blue SDB's and MDB's, and without growing test plants, you will probably never know "for sure".

It does look like a Warburton. Truly has too much contrast in the veins, but the other blues that had pictures had similar qualities to my little blue. Maybe as more get posted one will show up that fits.

Frankly, it isn't the best grower so perhaps they don't offer it every year.

Well this little iris grows great! So maybe it isn't Truly.
