not sure what it is either
I thought Edith Wolford, what do you think
it is not yellow on top but a creamy white..

I was given this yellow iris that is about 38 inches tall..
have to stake it...which I do not like to do..
Any one know what these are?

How about "Stairway to Heaven" for the first one. Kinda hard from the distance shown. Need a close up to give a better opinion.

I also immediately thought *Stairway to Heaven* for the blue/white. No clue on the yellow..............pretty, though.

I don't know Sheri -- from a distance it looked like it might be *Stairway to Heaven* -- from close up, less so................

It's always a guess from photographs -- heck, often it's a guess in person.

Here's a picture of my *Stairway to Heaven* -- what do you think?

The angle of the camera can make a difference. The conditions (sunny, cloudy, etc.) can make a difference. Soil can make a difference. Cameras can make a difference.

That's why it's so hard...........

Check the pics on the wiki, there's one with almost the same camera angle. Check Significant other, also. To my eye, it's too close to call....Arlyn
