This iris was on a farm my parents owned - from an old iris bed from years ago. It has white standards and reddish purple falls. It has the most outstanding sweet fragrance. Can you identify this iris? Thanks!

Check out some photos and descriptions of Folkwang(Goos&Koenemann 1925) on the AIS wiki, and the HIPS site. May be a good starting place....Arlyn

The Historic Iris Society has a picture gallery that may offer help in identifying your Iris, http://www.hips-roots.com/visitors/v-photos/vp-topframe.html
