Donald, my White Lightning looked more like Colleen”s.  The yellow shoulders were very conspicuous.  It is a lovely iris.  Unfortunately I lost it to bloom-out a couple of years ago.

What I grow as WHITE LIGHTNING doesn't quite look like Colleen's photo.
Here it is a bright white.  The yellow on the shoulders is inconspicuous.
It may be just the photo, but Colleen's seems to have some yellow on the
rims of the bloom.  It definitely doesn't show that here.  It is always
possible that I have a misnamed plant and don't know it, of course.  It is a
popular plant with visitors.  I can understand that since it blooms heavily
in the clump if it avoids our late spring freezes.
