Well, I did find a picture that matched it, finally, in my RORIS catalog;
I'm pretty sure this beauty is EXOTIC STAR (Plough '75). If anyone knows of
another iris that looks like it, let me know.  And it wan't a 2 year clump;
it was actually 15 months since planting, along with Immortality and Edith
Wolford planted 2-97. Imm. bloomed too! Amigo isn't finished blooming; when
it is, I'll post a complete bloom report. Such fun!
