An impressive clump!

Remember when you're dealing with a hybrid that any combination of traits
from the parents is likely to surface. Because some sibtosas are a bit
different doesn't mean that they're the only type that a combination of
those species can produce. Pure I. siberica (Flight of Butterflies as an
example) will
throw seedlings with narrow upright foliage while a modern hybrid with I.
sanguinea in the mix will give broader leaves and more relaxed foliage
especially if paired with a setosa that might have the broader relaxed
leaves of some types from SIGNA.

The pattern on the back of the falls is similar to that of some Siberians.
Foliage looks more like a combination of Siberian and setosa. (Psuedacorus
leaves are usually upright with more stiffness and show a pronounced rib.
The trait usually shows through in hybrids.)

The spoon-shaped standards are what give it away as a hybrid and hint at a
Siberian being involved in the cross. Psuedacorus aren't noted for large
standards and when combined with setosa, which has almost no standards,
would be unlikely to produce such a trait.
