I was going to mention Edith W.  and Silverado are two very fussy  cultivars, also.  They either don't bloom or don't bloom AND disappear in my over filled beds. Rather  sad I can't keep those two  alive and I live only 15 miles from Patti.

Bugleboy Blues (Geo. Sutton R. 1995)  Sdlg. G-65A.  TB 38"  ML Ruffled sky blue (RHS 109c) mottled french blue (100): style arms blended sky blue (109B/C); beards sky blue, base white, gold in throat ending in sky blue spoons; slight sweet fragrance.  Dauber's Delight x Honky Tonk Blues.  Sutton 1996.  This sounds like the iris in your photo.  Probably the one that did not bloom was Silverado.  Mine did not bloom the first year I had it and several others have mentioned that theirs did not either.  My Silverado is on a steep gravel bank on the north side of my house and it does not rot but then we have no rain in the summer months and it gets very hot.  I think it likes the cooler north side of the house like my old Edith Wolford likes to be in mottled shade on a steep bank.  She blooms for me every year.

Arid USDA Zone 5 in WA State where we have heavy smoke from fires in the area.
