Late, late bloom

Hello gardeners:

One week ago I picked two stalks of Iris laevigata 'Semperflorens.'  It is
growing in a 5-gal. pot, standing in about 10 inches of water in my fish
pond.  Both stalks had trouble opening in the Autumn chill (we had not had
a real freeze up to that point...it is expected tonight!), but when I cut
them and brought them inside, they both opened beautifully!  The flower was
pale blue, almost that powder blue of the TB 'Song of Norway.'  (My catalog
says this cultivar is "grape color," but mine certainly was NOT!)  Do any
of you grow this beardless iris...and do I have a properly named
