Thanks, Dave! I'll pass along your suggestion. I suspect that, for many people who are unfamiliar with historic irises (and I'm in that category), the ones chosen as possible IDs for a NOID plant consist primarily of those that have easily accessible images. I had to do a bit of online searching for images of Coralie, and it wouldn't have occurred to me to do so without your suggestion in hand.

Could also be coralie but I hate making suggestions without seeing the plant.  Rameses and coralie are very similar but you can tell them apart by carefully examining them.

Subject: [iris-photos] Unknown historic - ID possible?

Hello all - this photo was posted to a daylily group I belong to, as a NOID.
The poster was interested in knowing whether anyone could ID it. He was
directed to the HIPS iris ID forum, looked at the images he was given, and
concluded that it was probably RAMESES. Another poster to the daylily group
suggested possible IDs of AUTUMN SUNSET and FARANDOLE.

Here is his color description of the iris:

"The upright petals are not white/white; they are a light tan/cream with no
hint of blue tones. The downward sepals are more of a muddy red rather than
an outright purple. (Please pardon my use of daylily terms, but I am almost
totally uneducated as to iris terms). However, my photos are still very
close to true color tones. Thanks for any help, LaVere"

Do any of you have any thoughts on whether his tentative ID is correct?
