Lovely, LOVELY! I really like the form of those flowers! And the blushing up the midribs is quite tantalizing . . .
Great job. I hope to see some spring blooms of this. On first thought, it looked like the form of some of Mike Sutton's irises, but a quick check on the pedigree proved me wrong.
Thanks for posting!
Oh, could you explain for me what "Spent primary fan last spring" refers to? did the fan die out without blooming, or you didn't get to see the stalk?

Planted in 09. Spent primary fan last spring. Two stalks started after
the drought broke in mid October, so it's blooming stressed, potted and
indoors. It was in the very back of the garden, so didn't get much water.
This is the third of 15 seedlings from this cross to bloom out of season.
One other had a spent primary last spring. Much higher percentage than
I'm used to, even with Z5 X Z5.
