Walta, you got a time constraint on that ID? I sense urgency......

Have you considered sending a rhizome to the HIPS ID Chairman to grow on for 
study? In some few circumstances involving an exceptionally distinctive iris 
he is especially familiar with he can also work from a photo.

The first question that arises in any situation like this is whether the iris 
shows PBF (purple based foliage) at any time during the season. I say at any 
time because this most useful discriminator may come and go. My unknown on 
the HIPS page called Bowing Green Beauty showed not one iota of PBF at 
seasons end, despite being a strongly colored variegata, but this spring we 
have observed strong PBF which has reopened some possibilities for 

Your iris sounds very wonderful, Walta, and I sure hope you can get us a 
photo to look at.
