I found this strange iris among a bed of light purple "regular" bearded irises. This plant has short, curly/wavy foliage, and although it has the characteristic fuzzy beards, it seems to have missing/vestigial standards and falls on the flowers.
I have included photos of the same bloom from different angles, as well as one photo of the foliage and rhizome.
I would like to know if this is a "regular" bearded that is afflicted with a disease/pest/mutation, or if it is a different variety.
The irises are from the bed of a neighbor's garden who says they were a gift from a friend years ago, and she doesn't know anything about them.
Thank you in advance for any help.
