Pittsford, NY(Zone 6a)

Its winter so I am solving some mysteries.This iris needs an ID.
I believe its an intermediate and about 24 inches tall.
Actually more purple.

Looks a little like 'Zambezi' ?

This mystery has drivin me nuts for years. I am almost tempted to take it as Zambesi it's really close. I dont sell iris ,just plant them in my perennial gardens.
I dig at Borglums iris farm

His website hasn't been updated for years and he has a casual manner about labels.
His TBI's are labeled but I didnt care what the name was when I dug it to go with other colors that bloom in May.

I'm no expert - I just have a photographer's eye!
Good luck, ge1836!

I am really thankfull for your eye. I have been all over trying to find another image of Zambesi and there are not many.I dont believe its a registered iris.
That isnt important,the colors are great with emerging astilbes.
