Another aid in identifying unknown iris is purple based foliage (PBF)
and Dauntless has it. Not as strong as some and being of a red-purple
coloration. I checked the look-alikes, Indian Chief and Rosy Wings, at
least IMO on first observation they look alike, and they DO NOT have
PBF. Our Dauntless came from what some people would call a reliable
source, the HIPS ID Chairman Phil Edinger.
I could not take a picture today for as you probably know it poured
today and is still raining. Close to .50 inches. I will try again
