This was sent last fall as a gift plant, with Beauty Contest written on a leaf (miraculously, the dried up leaf was still on the rhizome and I just pulled it off, with the name clearly written in sharpie, which backs up my plant marker info). I was wondering if you thought it could actually be Treasured, which I purchased from her. I don't know where in the garden that one's supposed to be, I haven't looked for it yet. I think many of the characteristics look to Treasured with the exception of the beard. The beard on mine is light lavender for it's entire length. I should have gotten a better pic of the shoulders...pics are full sun, cloudy, behind Fairy for comparison, and of the hafts. Thanks!

Give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above. Don't fence me in.

Maybe it's Enjoyment?

I have to agree it doesn't look pigmented enough to be Treasured. It's too light to be Enjoyments as well, and the beard's not the same color. I messaged the lady that I got both iris from - I hope she has an idea! I love the bloom but I kinda hate NOIDS. This is the FFO after a cold snap, so I'll watch to see if successive blooms look a little different. Thanks for trying to help!
