Hello Daylilylady, what class of iris such as TB, BB, IB, etc. bloom time early, medium or late, more photos to compare beard etc. Then from the photos and information all we can do is make suggestions. You must choose which, if any, suggestions we make and acquire the plants and grow them beside your noid in order to make a definite identification. There are so many irises out there it is easy to confuse one with another and really muddy the waters so to speak. Speaking from experience a definite I.D. takes time and effort. I have at least six 'almost' irises of one cultivar and I think I am giving up on that one.
I love my garden.... and Jesus, and coffee, and naps.......

It's a space-age -- that should narrow the field.............

I am with Bonnie on this. The details are an important component to getting a good guess from the peanut gallery that is the ATP iris forum! Whistling

Things or info we need to make our educated guess:

Height
Bloom time (early, mid, or late)
PBF
Fragrance
type (SDB, IB, MDB, MTB, BB, TB) blah blah blah {in this case it appears to be either a BB or a TB)

I am with Mary Ann in that this NoID is a SA

This is the type of info that we need to help you narrow the field so you can buy "test" plants to grow next to your NoID!!!

I agree with Bonnie and Greg -

Just a head's up! There are many pinky peach space agers out there.

Could be Monty Byers 'Pagan Pink'.
Hard to tell from the photo.

Hello everyone. Thanks for your input. The photo was taken march 21 at our iris society meeting in mt. Pleasant texas. It is a tall bearded iris with a slight fragrance. I do not know much more but I can find out from our member as to the height and so forth. The irises just started blooming here mid march thanks

I agree, it does look like April Jewel, but you need more information to narrow down the possibilities and then you need to grow the most likely match alongside your iris to see if it's really a match.
