Linda, I really like that color.  It’s one that I am working with in my pollen daubing.  It’s found in Role Model, and to greater and lesser extent in Arizona Sandstone and Cast of Characters.  The hafts are narrow, but I’ve seen worse on newer irises.  I think you have a nice seedling.

Rebloomer from bee pod seeds that Barb Johnson gave me several years
ago, collected by Mueller from his garden.

Faults - narrow falls (a lot more than a thumb width spacing at the
hafts), messy hafts, not the healthiest, not cooperatively fertile.
Good qualities - reliable rebloom, moderately healthy, high bud count &
low branching (not sure that's actually a plus - sure makes it hard to
put in a vase).  Nothing else even vaguely like it reblooms here, other
than maybe BELVI QUEEN, which has the same pigments, but doesn't look
anything like this.

Not sure this gives a good idea of the color - it's one of those pinky
mauve purplish browny things that result from layering of blue and
yellow.  I have a photo of the pigment extraction if anybody wants to

So, anybody in "the vale" think this is good?
