[PHOTO] Re: Dover Beach - label found!

To Sandy Ives and everyone else who wrote to me in regards to my misnamed "Dover Beach",
I finally found the original packaging.
When it flowered last summer, I assumed that it actually was Dover Beach, and did not know
otherwise until I saw it on the 'net. I did not even check the package again.
Boy was I wrong!
This goes to prove that "what is written is not necessarily what it actually is".
I have also learned that I am going to be buying from growers, rather than from garden centres. Although the iris I received is quite nice, I thought I bought a named variety, so I am ever so slightly disappointed.
Original message with photo of my mystery iris below if anyone would like to take a stab at it. Still wondering what it really is....

Subject: Dover Beach?

I was surfing about this morning when I came across a site with a picture of "Dover Beach" which looks totally different from my "Dover Beach"!
I have enclosed a picture (please excuse the resolution, it is a video capture off my camcorder).
If this isn't Dover Beach, does anyone know what it is?
