Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've posted on this forum. I got a noid iris a couple of years ago. It bloomed for the first time today and I'm so happy it's a yellow one because I've been wanting yellow irises. It's much smaller than some of my other ones. Is it considered a historic?

It looks like it could be, but hard to id many just on some photos.
Officially the AIS defines historic as any iris introduced 30 or more years ago, so once you know which you have the intro date would be known.
Good luck with the id.

Thanks Dave. I'll probably never know but it's a nice iris and it almost reminds me of a yellow version of the pallida I grow.
