We used to have a very similar iris and it was identified as

Iris laevigata 'Variegata'

San Jose

Where would this iris fit within all the groups and sections indicated by
the Wiki content?…

As a relative newcomer to growing water irises that are not included within
the Pacific Coast group I imagine it should be placed under I think it might
fall under Iris brevicaulis (beardless, rhizomatous). Would this be the
right place? The plants grow in shallow water and, like the Pacific Coast
group, are in full bloom now. The very attractive flowers stand about 2 feet
above the surface. The foliage is arched up to about 18 inches. Thanks
