My GUESS, is that this iris is I. nepalensis (AKA I. decora). There is a 
photo of it on p.90 of Kohlein's book. This iris has fleshy roots 
similar to daylilies. I think it is also known as the 'Vesper iris' 
because of it's habit of only opening for about a 1/2 day. 

How is iris season going in S.A. Sally?
Cheers, Jan Clark
