Hi Moira,

I would be suspicious of potted variegated irises being sold by nurseries.  
They are often mislabeled.  They might possibly be variegated I. laevigata or 
I. ensata, or they might be variegated Acorus.  A few years ago, we came across 
irises being sold as variegated I. tectorum, but they were really I. 
japonica, which is not hardy in our zone 5 or 6.
