I don't recognize it, but it seems like the kind of iris that Fred Kerr may have developed. He does a lot with irises with edges like that. You may want to check out his website. Smiling

Welcome! Kathy
I think it could be Marching Band, but I am not certain as I don't grow that one.

:




these are just a few irises with similar coloring, and by no means all. i just looked in the database, filtered by checking 'tb' and peach, which you might want to do to look more thoroughly?

do you remember which growers or nurseries you might have purchased the iris? and narrow it down to span of years?

anyway, a few ideas to help you with the i.d. it's always difficult without height, fragrance, bloom....time, etc. because as you will see as you go through the db color of bloom has so many variables with soil, temperature, and climatic conditions.

And don't forget the color variance of cameras. I've spent a small fortune buying different iris trying to find an ID for a very much loved NO ID.

I knew it wasn't Parisian Dawn, thinking UNDERCURRENT. I did receive it a yr ago, but also wondered about Marching Band, it's suppose to be in the garden "somewhere"! Thanks all for your responses
