This iris is more blue than purple. Sorry for the poor lighting.

Welcome Regina! Welcome!

Does this iris have a strong scent to it? I'm thinking it might be "City Lights".

I am not certain, but I believe it does. I will make sure to check when it blooms this season. The picture does look like it. Thank You!

No, not Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Exotic Isle') which has a beard registered as "Lavender, tipped yellow".

My first thought was City Lights too, and the color of mine is more purple than blue like your photo.
