Hi Donald
The Iris shown in your photo is not Blumohr
You might want to look at HUMOHR Ben Hager 1980 which is a strong possibility.The ASI  have a very good Illustrated Checklist that you can view or download from their web site
Plumbago was also used in the description of White City  the Historic British Dykes Medal winner .
