To me this iris looks like ELEANOR ROOSEVELT. It is
a Sass (H. P. Sass) iris, and introduced by McDade in 1933. Mine
bloomed about a month ago.

This little purple iris is one a friend of mine shared
with me. She dug it in the spring right after it bloomed and sent it so she
would be sure to get the right one. It opened today for me. It's a small one,
only 19" and the bloom is 4" x3'. It grows well as evidenced by the clump it
has already produced and she said it bloomed almost all summer in her yard
last year. Does anyone have an idea who it might be?
