Equinox Iris

This is the first perennial to bloom this year in my flower garden, on the Spring Equinox too. Its a miniuture Iris(Iris reticulata). Although I have no idea exactly what kind of Iris it is, or its place of origin, if any(possible hybrid cultivar), which is something I am pretty OCD(Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)about usually and wont plant unless I know, I still love these little beauties, especially because they bloom so early in the spring. Like many beauties, they are poisonous.
