I bought about six of them but for the life of me can't find my order with the name. Driving me nuts. Oh, I guess it would help to know it is fairly short, maybe 12-14" tall and bloomed 7-17 this year

Thanks for any ideas

There are quite a few Siberians that look like that, but one of the more widely distributed is Siberian Iris (Iris 'Butter and Sugar')
