I've been trying to identify this one for several years, and though I was tempted to call it Snow Moon, I know it's not tall enough.

It is one of my earlier bloomers (bloomed today), and is 20" tall. Any ideas as to identification?

It sure is nice, I hope you find the name for this one.

I wonder if it could be "Apricot Frosty."

I put Apricot Frosty on my want list the other day. I looked it up and Blue Jay iris has it listed for sale.

Thank you cowrita1 -- I see from your photo that the beards are a different color; mine appears darker, more orange. One habit of my iris, also, is that the standards open up instead of staying tented over the middle of the bloom.

Reminds me of 'Spiced Custard', but I'm not convinced..

Here is another photo of my NOID, this photo from this year. Besides being a little richer in color, they are taller, 25" this time (I gave them better treatment). To me they look like a bunch of "flying nuns," the way the falls often flip up and look ready to fly.
