I was going to mention Edith W. and Silverado
are two very fussy cultivars, also. They either don't bloom or don't
bloom AND disappear in my over filled beds. Rather sad I can't keep those
two alive and I live only 15 miles from Patti.

Sutton 1996. This sounds like the iris in your photo.
Probably the one that did not bloom was Silverado. Mine did not
bloom the first year I had it and several others have mentioned that theirs
did not either. My Silverado is on a steep gravel bank on the north side
of my house and it does not rot but then we have no rain in the summer months
and it gets very hot. I think it likes the cooler north side of the
house like my old Edith Wolford likes to be in mottled shade on a steep bank.
She blooms for me every year.
