Vera, Even reputable sources make mistakes.  I've often received the iris 
next to the one I ordered.  If you think this is the case you should let 
them know and they will likely replace them.  Cross pollenation would 
only happen if they'd been there several years, and you'd let them make 
pods.  Work the soil, distribute the seeds in the same bed, and it would 
still be a couple years before those seeds would bloom. You've probably 
just received the wrong iris.  It's hard to tell what color the bloom is 
when they don't have a bloom stalk on them.  :) Will Warner

All the iris were purchased mailorder from reputable companies by
variety. I just checked my established beds of old-fashioned purple
iris which have been here several years, and I see some strangers
appearing in them!!!! Is it possible that cross-pollination has
occurred? I know nothing about iris breeding.
