Yes, Nell, I've seen it.  It is indeed intriguing.  Description --umm, hmmm,
well its kind of strange-looking in bud, very different-looking in bloom,
it's kind of uh, an Appaloosa iris, I guess, is the closest I can come.  Sort
of a leopard-spot Appaloosa, with kind of muddy-colored spot markings on a
kind of cream-toned ground.

Anyone else want to take a stab at this?! 

Anyway, I can assure you that the prize is well-deserved!
