Shannon, that is what we call a Tall Bearded iris as the type, and the color
pattern is what is known as a "plicata."  The word has the same Latin root
as the word "application," meaning something sewn or stitched on.  The
pattern name dates from the mid 1700's.

It undoubtedly is a named variety, but it would be difficult to say what its
identity is from a photograph.  It is a lovely iris, is it not!
