TB: Identification of tall bearded iris needed

  • Subject: [iris-photos] TB: Identification of tall bearded iris needed

Hello. I have opened a folder and will upload pictues soon. I was 
unable to do so at this very moment.
I have a historic iris. I have been growing this variety for about 
15 years now. It is a tall bearded. I don't remeber the exact 
height, but it was tall enough to be a TB.
It is very similar to Lent A Williamson, as are many historics.
This TB has proven very pod fertile, but is almost certainly pollen 
sterile. I have attempted to self pollinate and pollinate other 
varieties with no success. I bring this up because I have read that 
Lent A Williamson is reportedly pollen fertile.
I attempted a number of cross pollinations to this TB and have had a 
few nice pods result. I am still awaiting seedlings from those 
This particlar TB has 3 - 4 buds per plant.
The flowers are certainly historic in appearance.
I know there are many TB's that look similar, but perhaps someone 
with more experience can help identify this iris or have a better 
idea based on seeing it.
I will post pics as soon as I am able or figure out why I can't 
upload pics.
I have checked through many sources and the closest in flower size 
and coloration that I have found is Lent A Williamson.
Thanks to anyone with any help.
