I know there are thousands of registered irises just like the daylilies but do you mind taking a look?

Definitely not Acoma! Big Grin

Looks like an SDB - maybe Bonnie @grannysgarden has some ideas? Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers!

Definitely looks SDB size. Can you post a couple more pictures of it? Looks a bit like Inner Space but need more pics.

It may have to grow for another season to get its true size and color. I agree with Leslie we need more photos from every angle. It looks a lot like my James Bond which blooms here a light blue with tan/brown markings and a blue beard. I moved my JB last year to a different area but it has a new bloomstalk on it so i may get to see it this year. Crossing Fingers! Mark your little iris as a NoID and give it another year for more photos. We should be able to ID it. Thumbs up In a week or two the little ones will start blooming and i will watch for similar ones that may help in IDing it. Smiling

Kabby, its always the one you are most eager to see that gets stepped on, dug up, chewed on or just plain disappears. Grumbling I guess that gives us something to really look forward to though. I hope it thrives and we get to see photos of future blooms. Smiling Thumbs up

The closest irises I can find to your NoID are Toned and Baffle. There aren't many photos of them on the internet so I don't know how the colours compare. The falls look more rounded on your NoID, but I thought they might be worth considering.
