I think the 2 tone blue one is 'October Sky' It looks just like mine which is about to open. Good selection - it's a rebloomer!

Bathgate, Thank you for October Sky as a suggested name. Looked that up in the Iris data base. The falls of mine are more purple than blue, no white flash. It does have a scent but I wouldn't call it Spicy. A pic to follow.
Gg, the pink is the one that is supposed to have purple streaks on the petals, didn't last year. So far no streaking on the 3 flowers that have opened.
