That's a little earlier than you suggest, but much the same time. I wouldn't 
quite know where to start, but will pour through what books I have available 
for photos, and hope perhaps a few people will come up with comparative 
photo's on the net.
My idea of detective work was to go to the source, and see if she has any 
ideas where it came from, and thus what it might be. My feeling is that 
comparatively few irises of that era will have been imported to Australia, 
and probably, but not necessarily, the more popular ones. Of course names 
could have been switched way back then. Some of the most popular commercial 
sources in Australia sell their irises under the wrong cv names.

This photo came out looking like a night sky Edmundas. Perhaps another try?
Cheers, Jan
