I had several suggestions before that the unknown iris was QUEEN'S SPLENDOR.  I'm pretty sure this is right.  Anybody have a pic of it?  It's not Misty Lady.  I appreciate all the help.  Thanks..Will

Hi Mike,
I see you have a photo of Misty Lady. However, the standards of Misty Lady here for me were a pale lavender - - almost a white, no pink whatsoever.  (Quite similar to the checklist description)  Possibly the desert sun here in Arizona caused mine to look more white though.  Looking again at Will's photo - the standards seem to be a lot more white than a pale lavender.  Will's unknown may not have the pale lavender color in them ......................... in which case - - his unknown would definitely not be Misty Lady. 
Note:  Here are 2 internet photos I found of Misty Lady.  Looking at all 3 photos  (these 2 and Mikes') - one would never guess they were all the same iris.  And none of these 3 looked quite like mine did.  If anything - - it goes to show how soil condition, lighting, fertilizers, time of day, etc all have a play in how a flower looks.
It can be quite hard to ID by internet, but we try.

Here is Misty Lady, doesn't look like the unknown to me but I have been wrong before.

The best guess I can come up with is Misty Lady.  I grew it years ago. But alas..........I have no photo.  However the colors, the beard, the slight white around the beard, the reddish coloring inside the shoulder area, the form, and the purple inside the standards along the midrib all seems to match.  But, don't take my word for it............... instead I suggest you buy Misty Lady and Queen's Splendor next year and grow them both along side your unknown and compare it.  Hopefully one would be a perfect match.  Possibly someone else would have a photo of Misty Lady or Queen's Splendor that would help narrow it down.
