Some possibilities:







I might help if you know how old it is or how tall it grows?

Maybe someone who grows this cultivar will recognise it?
You don't know if it will grow until you try!

Thanks, @IrisLili
Unfortunately, the iris is gone Crying It was toss out when the bed was redone at our church.
A friend and I were so happy to see it bloom after couple of years in the bed (we were taking care of it for a couple of years). It was not a dwarf - a regular tall bearded iris. Received from a trade at least 8 years ago. Been searching for an iris like it ever since.

Night Magic would be a good replacement - it grows well for me at least!

It looks like Merry Amigo

I think Merry Amigo has only been registered about 8 yrs.
It bloomed for me the first year in DFW area TX
May you be blessed!
I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.

I think Merry Amigo looks close enough that this iris could replace your NO ID. Good search, Sharon. Thumbs up
