It is pretty though, even without a name.

All to often, our human desire to "classify and name " everything starts over riding our common sense, and we feel that, if it doesn't HAVE a name, it's somehow "not complete". Enjoy it for what it is ! Remember, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet !", and so will an iris !
These things don't come with serial numbers on the bottom !
