That sure looks good to me! In other comparison photos it even shows the teeny bit of yellow.

Chelle, you can try the iris forum, but it's very hard to ID irises.

Please read this. We iris growers won't even try to ID unless someone has a list of the irises received, then we can suggest which it might be.

Our suggestion really is to just give them a pet name, pretty one, pretty two, etc.

Thanks, Polly.

Pet names are great! They're my favorite, actually. Big Grin Guess these will just not make it into the DB.

How do you know when purchasing if you've received the right one?

You purchase from reputable places, and you normally get properly named ones. If they match the plant on the web page for the reputable grower, you can expect they're proper. Growers make mistakes too, but normally if it's a mistake it won't match the picture on the site where you purchased it, and then often the grower can identify it, as they grow them by alphabet, or numbers, and it was probably a plant grown right next to the right one.

And, that, Ms. Chelle, was an excellent question!
