Took these snaps when I was leaving to go to my nieces house for our Easter gathering. I got this iris at a plant give and take several years ago. I would love to know what its name is.

By the looks of it I would say it's an historic, but which one I can't help with. Like the gold rim on the standards and falls.

At first I though Moonlit Sea, but that has a distinct white area around the beard.

Hello Tamara,
On the Historic Iris Preservation Society website, there is an Advanced Search feature which allows you to search by characteristics such as fall colour and beard colour.

The closest match I found was Mary Carriere. I found a better image of Mary Carriere here:

Mary Carriere appears to have the a tan rim on the standards like your iris and is worth considering.
