When I dug this up to move to new place, the tag was missing.
Any ideas, I might recognize the name if I heard it but as someone suggested last night, memories aren't always reliable, Blinking Confused
Thank You!

Check the pics of Thornbird in the database since it often produces spoons as well as horns. The beards are thick though so also check out Ozone Alert (though that one doesn't usually have spoons.)

After me review of the Thornbird pics, I think that it is a pretty good chance that is the iris you have.

That's it! I will look at the database but I remember the name after seeing it!
Thank you very much

I concur.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

Thornbird was my first thought as well! I hope mine blooms this year.
