I think that Dark Chrystal purple extends all the way to the edge of the falls. Go to & click on the iris encyclopedia for it. It is at the bottom on the left.

It’s okay to not know all the answers.

Debra got her Dark Crystal from me, and see the difference in how location changes things. Her's seems to have a lighter edge, and I don't see that as much on mine.

Another reason that pictures are not an accurate way to determine cultivars. It's only a part of the process.

I have some to suggest but it would really be wild guesses not knowing if they are SDB's or MDB's and if color in photos are correct. And like Tom said color and pattern will slightly vary from different regions. The third one is a bi-color and easier to narrow down that way.
