Iris ID

Anybody know what the name of this iris (the big one on the left) is? It's not one I've ever ordered. At first I thought it was 'Starship Enterprise', which I do have.

The second photo below is my 'Starship Enterprise' blooming last year. However, the falls on this new one are much more burgundy than purple, the beards are more orange than yellow, and the standards are a definite peach, as opposed to white.

Thanks in advance!

A beautiful plant but I do not know its name.

I think it is 'Starship Enterprise'...different lighting conditions can make a big difference in the colors represented in the photo. For example, look at how completely different Mystic's Muse looks. The amount of water and temperatures also affect color and size.

On the other hand the proportion of the falls to the standards does look really different.

Some other possibilities might be "Change of Pace", "Instant Hit", "Braggadocio" (it looks a lot like the photo in the Schreiner's catalog), or "Bold Fashion".

I'm just smiling that someone named a flower 'starship Enterprise' ;-)
