There are two iris in this photo,

One is the iris I thought might be first Violet, or alternately Great Lakes Iris. The raspberry Iris was called Jennifer Rebecca in Spring Hills catalogue. Historic Iris Society says it is not Jennifer Rebecca (reblooming). Kats12

Thanks, everybody that gives it a try.

There are two iris. The raspberry colored Iris was called Jennifer Rebecca (rebloomer) as described in the Spring Hill catalog. The more Violet one is one I asked about earlier. Does anyone think it might be Great Lakes Iris. Or is there any ruling out either of the possibilities. Does anyone recognize the raspberry colored iris

Take a look at Persian Berry and see what you think. It has a bit of purple/blue at the tip of it's beard, Your photo doesn't show that on the close up bloom, but kind of looks like it in the bloom farther back. You may want to take some close up pictures of yours to post and compare.

I agree

Lavender one does not look like Great Lakes to me--wrong form, too many ruffles
