Iris - unknown maroon/gold

Anyone know what variety this is?

There were a few when A moved to this garden but they had become so overshadowed they’d all but stopped flowering. I’ve been splitting them and moving to various spots around the gardens to see where they best thrive and the mini garden edge seems to suit getting baked by sun. This set taken from ones that had popped out the other side of the North fence.

Height is about 75cm.

This planting is in the A's mini garden .
