Hi,  I'm new to the group, with no way to post photos now, but am enjoying looking at everyone else's.  I'm located se. of Belen in se. New Mexico, and am enjoying a little bit of rebloom on intermediate irises now.  Mostly (I think) they are 'Eleanor Roosevelt'.
As for your Iris, turns out to be fairly easy.  This one is a real survivor, and even lasts for years here in abandoned lots, where it may get only 5 or 6 inches of rain a year!  It is the species Iris pallida.  As for the particular cultivar, that is a bit more difficult.  Plants labeled variously as 'Dalmatica', 'Odoratissima', and several other names are pretty nearly identical to the one in your photo, and I can't tell which clone it is.  But, I'm not sure I can even tell the living plants apart!  I understand that this species is one of those used in the perfume industry in southern Europe.

Hello all,
Anyone have any idea what kinda TBI this is?
Nice and tall, very fragrant, smells like grape kool-aid.
Any help would be great.
Thanks for looking everyone.
