Henhouse said:I've been searching for a name for this lovely Iris that was on the property when I came here 20 years ago.. I've looked at countless pictures of possibilities, and nothing has matched.. but that didn't deter me... I bought a few over the years to compare.. and there are one or two left to try.. But here's where I am..
I think 'Milestone' is my best bet at this point..
Edit. oh I see now maybe you have an ID. I think that looks grand! Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Fresh as Paint')
says '71, so even though, hard to find now maybe, back in its day it may have been a common one sold more widely. There is no photo of it in the database unfortunately.
I agree on Rare Treat also, I was going to post that but see someone else suggested that as well.

Gosh, what a great, reliable grower this has been.. I've moved it all around the garden because it looks so good with everything.. For years I thought it was 'Stepping Out' until someone pointed out the differences.
