I would like to thank everyone who responded to my query.  Please forgive a
novice photographer for misleading you into thinking this was a white
iris.I didn't realize that the picture looked so white.  The falls are
yellow but were covered by the sepals. I have attached photos showing more
detail of the falls as well as the bloom pattern on the stalk.  These were
taken inside with existing light so the colors would be more true.  

Also, I didn't think to give the bloom pattern on the stalk.  There are
normally 4 - 5 blooms per stalk which start blooming at the end of my
bearded iris season.  These are about the last blooms and the blooms
measure Horizontal: 3 1/2" - Vertical: 2 1/2"
If I remember correctly, the second bud from the top opened first.

Please excuse my ignorance - I had never heard of  Iris orientalis formerly
called Iris ochroleuca.  With this more detail, do you still think it is a

Orientalis is an all white iris, very pure white, with a yellow splotch, or
blaze, in the falls center.

The picture is orientalis. Trust me. I grow hundreds of these.

I agree, eespecially with the way the second bloom
invades the terminal, 
shape and size of the foliage. Generally I don't think
Sibs have that 
big a flower.  Bloom season for SPUs is before SIBs as
