Identification based solely on pictures is problematic at best. You need to help us help you. We need alot more information,

When in the season did it bloom? Early? Mid? Late?

How tall is it?

How long have you had it?

Are the pictures fairly accurate as to color presentation?

Are the Falls white or cream colored?

Does it have a fragrance? Slight or strong? Sweet or musky?

Does it have PBF? Slight or pronounced?

Welcome to the iris forum, SanDee! Glad to see you here. It is a lovely iris and I can see why you would like to find its name. So many beautiful ones have others that are very similar to them and that is why so much information is required just to narrow the field of speculation. If you have any more info please post. There are others on this site that love a good challenge. smiles....

Hi SanDee -- Welcome!

So which color is more accurate, the dark color in the first two pictures? Or the lighter color in the last one?

If it's the last one, it might be Smoke Rings:

Welcome SanDee.
Very nice colors and patterns to the iris in question.
Be careful here, there are many temptations lurking to get you to plant more irises!

Welcome, Sandy. I am afraid that I can't help you. Many people given more information will do a shot at it.
