This iris is a Neglecta. "Inner segments, falls lavender, Standards lavender with a heavy dark blotch. An extra fine variety. Strong plants." (Description from "The Iris Catalog, Biltmore Nursery, 1912.)

Received a HC award in 1893.
(Personal note: It is possible that the heavy dark blotch is actually on the falls because the Biltmore Catalog sometimes has the Standards and Falls switched in it's description.)
