Lovely, but not what it is supposed to be. I think a 'Braithwaite' look-alike?

Sorry cannot help you there, I know what I like but know absolutely nil about Iris.....

It is a strange coincidence, but one of the first Iris I ever bought years ago was supposed to be Braithwaite, but turned out to be a completely different one. So I am pretty happy, but it can be annoying not getting the goods you think you have bought.

I had one similar to this and it was called Wabash.

Thank you Nancy, You are probably right, the standards are white like Warbash, not pale blue like Braithwaite.
