>It's labeled I. Unguequaris (I. Stylosa)

Allison, Iris unguicularis (correct spelling) is pictured on page 144 of
THE GARDENER'S IRIS BOOK.  Stylosa is an invalid name for this species,
sometimes encountered in the older literature.  Iris unguicularis blooms
from October to March depending on the clone.  The stems are around 8" to a
foot tall and the flowers usually some shade of violet, sometimes with
yellow on the petal backs.
The blossoms are extremely fragrant.  It prefers fairly limy,
not-too-fertile soil in a sheltered spot--up against a south-facing masonry
wall is ideal.
