On the other hand, maybe it *is* Butter And Sugar. I have now found some
pictures online that show Butter and Sugar having a lot more sugar than butter...Those
pics are pretty similar to mine. Maybe I've got the correct name after all.....
What do you all think?

Ok, you iris sleuths, it's my turn to ask for help with an ID. I've
attached pics of an iris that I purchased several years ago as Butter
and Sugar. I planted it in a very moist spot where it languished for a
couple of years, surviving, but little else. Last year, I moved it to a
spot where its feet could dry out and it responded pretty well, and
bloomed this year. The pictures of Butter and Sugar that I have seen
online show yellow falls with white standards, so it obviously was not
true to name. This was my first Siberian, and I have not seen others in
person, but the foliage and growth habit look very similar to that of
Super Ego that I got last year, so I would assume it is a siberian. The
bloom is at 22 inches and I have attached both a mug and clump shot.
