I was wondering the name of this flower. Thanks in advance.

It looks to me like it might be some type of bearded iris. I don't know the particular variety.

Libby, that flower is a Lavender Iris.
Do you know what type of flower this is. The leaves to the right are from a different plant (day lilly).
Editor's Note: It looks like a lily of the valley. They flower for a short time, then will come back year after year. They have a very sweet scent.
It actually looks like a Lilly of the Valley to me?
This is an bearded Iris Bearded iris are available in a wide variety of flower colors, including pink, blue, red, yellow, and purple. They bloom in early summer, with some varieties reblooming later in the summer. They grow from 8 inches to 4 feet tall, depending on variety. The flowers are lovely in bouquets, and the foliage remains attractive even after flowers have faded. Unfortunately, the plants are susceptible to borers, so check the rhizomes (fleshy roots) yearly for holes, discarding any infested ones
If left alone they will multiply and fill an entire area in
The original picture in the posting looks like a bearded iris. I believe the second picture posted is the Lilly of the Valley.
The lavendar flower is an iris. I have lots of them in my garden. The one with the white flowers is Lily of the Valley. For sure on both. Check the internet and you will see.
