Thanks for the feedback, folks. I see that you are right that it’s not VF. Drat! I really want to know what it is. I looked up Altruist, and that might be it. It looks very, very close most of the pictures of Altruist; however, isn’t it interesting how different the shades of blue appear in different areas. I have a transplant here in my garden from that light blue and the stalk at present is as hard and rigid as a steel cable! I have never seen an iris plant with a stalk so strong.
Anyway, the irony is that I have Victoria Falls –first year plant – two flowers down from the lighter blue, and I could compare them up close if VF would just cooperate and bloom, which apparently it is not going to do this year! Who knows, though, I’m still holding out hope.
