A friend had this iris growing in her yard and didn't remember name. My initial thought was it might be moonlit water, but the more I look at it, I think it's not. Any thoughts from the peanut gallery? The hybrid had to be released before 2009 when the photo was taken.

Maybe some of the more experienced irisarians might identify it for you.

Could it be Inside Job?


Both have the streaks and as well as being lavender ruffled luminatas, with a hint of gold in their hearts.

Daisy ~ I think the picture the Richard presented shows more of a lavender color.

As the hybridizer, my first reaction is that it is INSIDE JOB.

Some of the photos in the database do show Inside Job being more lavender than the particular photo I pasted above.
