My White Lightning usually looks like yours also, I've never seen the yellow rim on it before. Also mine has never rebloomed. Also given that there is never a trace of blue or mauve in the buds, I was interested to see the purple colur breaks in your second photo. Must be some purple in it's background somewhere.

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

Here it is a bright white.  The yellow on the shoulders is
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
a  popular plant with visitors.  I can understand that since it blooms
heavily  in the clump if it avoids our late spring freezes.
