Does anyone recognize this flower and know the name of this iris? I bought it at a local sale years ago, and I think it has Oklahoma in the name or bird in the name....? It's become a nice clump in its forgotten place out by the driveway, and I just love the stripes! cheers for any response :)

If you go to the Irises database and type in Oklahoma several options pop up with Oklahoma in the name. Unfortunately many of them are historics that don't have photos in the database. Seeing the names may ring a bell though.

But you might go to historiciris.org and look up those names. They have changed their site since I last was on it, but they used to have photos of almost all iris and I would assume the still do. Looks like they don't have the option of typing in Oklahoma and bring up all with Oklahoma in the name though.
