SOLVED: Can anyone identify this iris?

(Zone 7a)

This is an historical iris I found at an old homestead...probably planted there over 100 years ago. Can anyone identify it?

I am going to an iris show Saturday. I will take a print-out of your iris with me. I have a similar one that I want to identify too.

Lantana they are called Lavender Bounty Iris(Iris siberica)you can find them at http://www.parkseed.com They have it listed as a new plant.

This is a bearded iris, not a Siberian...I did a google search on Lavender Bounty...not it...however, thank you for the input, windsurffer!

If that's not it, try phalanx: http://www.argyleacres.com/gallery/view_detail.asp?iris_id=361

Regardless of what it's called, it sure is pretty!

Phalanx is almost it but the self is a little more mauve. Mine might have been a parent of Phalanx possibly. I know it has to be very old because this house had not been inhabited for a very long time. It was all rotted and falling down. Someone recently bought the place and took a bulldozer to the house and yard. However, these iris were spared as well as the old chimney which was built of hand hewn native limestone.
