This was given to me as Iris 'Stitch WItch' but it does not look right to me. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any insight.

David ~ Welcome! to the Iris Forum! Hurray!

It is a lovely iris. Maybe someone more knowledgeable than I can answer your question.

There are several possibilities David. Smiling In order to narrow it down a bit we will need more photos from different angles with at least one a good view of the beard. Also any thing you know about it such as height, bloom time (E, M, L) etc. Thumbs up

Here are several photos taken today in Northern Virginia. We have a number of Standard Dwarf Bearded Irises, but the others are not close to being in bloom. Hope these photos help. Somehow in the process of taking the last 2 photos I managed to resize them smaller.

Posted more photos as requested (above). Does anyone have any guesses?

Did you get the iris from a vendor? That could help narrow down the choices. Looks to be a dwarf iris along the lines of Satin Dreams, but yours is lighter in color.
