Eliminating SPICED HONEY at Randy's certainty and assuming these are
the only other three cultivars your iris could be, my guess is SPANISH
LEATHER. Sutton's describes STRUTTIN' HIGH as a ruffled grey orange
with tangerine beards.
The 1989 Check List describes SPANISH LEATHER as, "Lightly ruffled
rose, copper, henna and maroon blend with golden dappling highlighting
shoulders and broad hafts; old gold blended beard."
