How tall does this get?

It doesn't appear to be orientalis. I. orientalis has a larger fall and more
white in relation to the signal. Also, the petals of orientalis are highly
reflexed and show yellow at the standard bases rather than green.

A friend gave me a start of these several years ago. She is close to 80. Her
Dad purchased it from a catalog when she was young and still at home. She
has grown it all these years.  She said he called it an " Orchid Iris". So
it must be at least 65 years old. This is the first bloom ever on it for me.
Anyone reconize it?
