That looks a *lot* like my Eleanor Roosevelt. Could it be?

The iris was in a neighbors yard this spring. I asked but she couldn't even remember where she got it many years ago. I am not familiar with Historics so I wouldn't venture a guess. I did find it charming.

They certainly look similar. I googled iris ER and the pictures that came up on Dave's garden look different.... Confused

Yeah, I know. Color tends to be completely different when I google it, but forms and markings seem to be similar. I've thought about asking the experts on the iris forum.
