First time I've seen this bloom in the fall. So far just this one solitary flower.
I bought this from EcoGardens/Don Jacobs several years ago. Would like to add to database and trade/sell. But not sure it's an accepted variety/cultivar?

There is an entry in the database for Iris Graminea which currently has no photos, so I would add it there and mention it's name in the comments section:
Miniature Dwarf Bearded Iris (Iris 'Graminea')

I don't know where to check if the hybrid "Eco Plum Pudding" is registered anywhere.

Mr. Jacobs often didn't register his plants with AIS, but they were distributed commercially. Here's the entry for your plant: Species Iris (Iris graminea 'Eco Plum Pudding')

I thought iris graminea was a species iris and not a MTB??? Blinking

I have Iris graminea and it looks nothing like a MTB or even a bearded iris... but I do have a picture of it somewhere...
You don't know if it will grow until you try!

There are 2 different plants listed. One is a cultivar, the other is the species.

Iris graminea is a beardless species of iris. However, there was also a Miniature Dwarf Bearded Iris named 'Graminea' that was in commerce at least through the 1930's. Today, AIS wouldn't allow an iris to be registered under a name like that, but such rules didn't exist at the time.
