It's really hard to tell with pictures, but one that looks a lot like your first one is Dorothy Devenport. I have one like your third picture too, but for the life of me I can't remember which one, I have so many pictures, I'll have to do some searching.

Welcome! Ostrovok
You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

They are first irises that I bought , Did realize that it is important to keep the names. For me they were Blue, Orange, Pink.....
But suddenly with the help of the forum I get addicted. In my little garden have around 100 irises.

You need a 'perhaps' of several names--then you can look them up.
