"Giant iris?"

Started by Bren - 2540 Friday, 25 October 2019

 After five years, this plant in my garden (which I thought was a Doryanthes) flowered and seems to be type of Iris. The bush is 1.5m tall and each flower only lasts a day. I can"t find any reference to an Iris this size though. Can anyone help?

 Here is a picture of the bush, hopefully the right way up...

 ...and the flower. It seems I can"t edit the posts once they are up!
