My iris is more a dwarf but it looks like all the pictures posted for this variety, and Camelot Rose is what the one I bought was called. Has anyone else had this experience with this variety, or any ideas on what variety I actually have? Thanks!

Had this one for years, even surived the ice storm of 2003 when others did not. I like like the velvety look of it.
