lantana (Zone 7a) This is an historical iris I found at an old homestead...probably planted there over 100 years ago. Can anyone identify it?

lantana (Zone 7a) 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!
dave719 Humansville, MO (Zone 6a) take a look at victorian veil at
Terry Murfreesboro, TN (Zone 7a) If that's not it, try phalanx:
Regardless of what it's called, it sure is pretty!
lantana (Zone 7a) 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.
