Lace Handkerchief iris

Spring Hill had this puppy on its cover last spring, and one of the SFIS club 
members offered it as a door prize at one of our meetings.  I won it, and Erik 
finally got it from the nursery earlier this month.  He got two, and popped 
one in the ground as soon as he got it, but then was unable to check on it for 
a few days.  When he did, he found it had died, in a three-day span.  From 
this, I deduce it must be allergic to either alkaline soil or dry conditions, 
or both, so it must be a beardless iris, and I've kept mine in a pot.  Seems 
happy and is putting out new, charmingly variagated foliage.  Does anybody 
know what kind of iris this might be?  The label from Spring Hill doesn't 
help, and if I remember, their catalog description didn't, either.

Barb, in Santa Fe, with still no sign of frost, but the aspens have begun 
turning up on the mountainsides.
