I'm looking for the names of the irises pictured below. My mom had them in her yard in Nebraska for many years and passed them down to my older brother. He sent me some of his but he doesn't know their names. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, Sherri. Before I would hazard a guess I would have to know what class of bearded irises these are. To help with that the height from ground to top of bloom would be needed. If you do not have that information you may have to wait for another bloom season to get it. At that time it would be good to get photos from several angles as well as photos of the beards. All of this information is required in order to narrow down the search a bit. Also, note whether the foliage is purple at the base, how many buds per bloom stalk, etc. Good luck.
I love my garden.... and Jesus, and coffee, and naps.......

I'd like to hear an opinion from @crowrita1
