I have a purple iris, possibly a historic one, and I have been unable to identify it. Would love to know it's name, if anyone can help. It was given to me by my mom who lives in Chattanooga, TN and she has never known it's name either. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

It looks like 'Lent A. Williamson' from 1918..

The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never tried to contact us.

I believe I have the same one and after looking at "Lent A Williamson" I think that may be it. Looks like yours, right? Or, is that variety more bi-tone than mine appears?
