Iris ensata 'Yedo Yiman'

The palest of the pink cultivars I grow - they are all really beautiful. The individual flowers only last for a day or so,
but there are usually a number in the head that open in succession.
Complicated chaos running though the nomenclature here. I think the name should be 'Yedo-jiman' (Pride of Yedo), a cultivar introduced by L. Boehmer and Co. in 1908.
It should be a dark blue single, I think my plant is probably 'Rose Queen'.
