I have a beautiful bearded iris in my garden which smells of toffee. Can any one identify the variety, please?
Photo attached.

Moonlight is one possibility. How long have you had it? How tall is it?

I've had this Iris for years, it was a cutting taken from my late mother's garden back in the 1980's . It's approximately 3ft tall

@pjnew

do you know a reliable source that carries 'kasmir white'? the only way to know for sure, is to grow them side by side, then compare the habits of growth, bloom time etc., then pick the flower apart to compare the petal parts Hilarious! you'll have a really good idea of a match... nodding
