20A16 is a beautiful iris, Siris. My irises are barely above the ground and usually some of them (most) will not open at all.

That Moth was still on the Iris this afternoon.

It is a lovely moth but it's just too blurred for me to id, so I have asked Victoria to take a look.

Thank you SBG, the moth was a bit "furry"

It's possibly an 'early grey'. Pattern is sort of correct.

I have a small identification book on Moths & Butterflies, but all the images have their wings open. The dark band must be markings across the wings.

Our iris are in bud and are doing much better in the front garden where it's a lot dryer and they get more sunshine. They didn't flower in the back garden near to the fence. Could be a garden carpet moth. It looks very similar in my book.
