Does anyone know what this Iris is?

Fort Dodge, IA

I thought maybe it was Jessie's Song but now I am not so sure. I got a truck load of them from a person moving into a new home and ripping out the existing gardens.

how tall is it?

Fort Dodge, IA

The flower stalk is just over 3 feet and on one stalk I counted as many as 7 flowers/buds

South Hamilton, MA

It is an older form of plicata than Jesse's song. i would suggest trying HIPS website as it looks like a historic type of irises to me. You can get the site through www.irises.org whic is the AIS site & click on the historic site.

Thanks, I'll check it out, although looking around other websites today I thought it maybe looked a bit like Mme Chereau ??

Maybe this one? It's called blue shimmer and it looks really close

that does look really close

Note that your flower has blue lines on the hafts, but Blue Shimmer does not. Close, but not there.

I would say closest to S. Francisco. Look at the beards. Are they yellow?

Fort Dodge, IA

The beard tip is white and gets sort of a creamy yellow near the throat. Does it matter that mine has a wider band of purple color along the bottom edge?

yes, it would be one of the flower characteristics.
