These are a favorite. Bought from Lowes B4 I knew better. I love it and have been trying to ID. I color It looks like my Paris Fashion ( assuming that is correct. It came from Spring Hill. More on that saga later if anyone cares). The biggest difference is that the Paris F. Is a bigger flower and the standards are taller. I thought they were the same flower at first glance. I would name it Swan Lake if it were me. It looks like ballerinas pirouette across the dance floor. Can anyone ID?

I'm sorry I don't know what it is, but I think you won the jackpot getting it! I wish I had your luck getting that NOID. Thumbs up It's absolutely beautiful!

I agree, it is a beautiful iris. Maybe name it Lovely Lowe's NoID. Green Grin!

At first glance, and since you mentioned it was a smaller iris, I thought Concertina. Concertina beards are horned though, and probably bluer..I know I have seen Concertina at box stores like Lowes several times. I know, really was no help, sorry.

I am not the biggest fan of pink iris, but that iris is really pretty. I like the color of the beard and it's contrast with the standard. Lovely Lowes NoID is awesome!!!
