Wow! Wonder if Meanie has seen this..he sent me a pallida..it wasnt this colour tho.

I have now!
Tet - the one that we have is the species Iris japonica variegata. I'm no Iris expert, but I think that this (rather lovely) one is one of the I.ensata hybrids.

I did think it was, but as I dont have any to compare I wasnt sure...

The first two years that it bloomed it was mainly white so I was surprized to see the variation this year.
