Iris Lady Beatrix Stanley is indeed a very good early bulb. However the actual flowering  time varies according  to the  conditions it has  been given.

Compare the pot which has been in a cold frame with the clump  in a raised bed fully exposed to the elements. Keeping  bulbs in cool shade  can delay flowering  eg for a show, though only to an extent -if kept too dull  they will elongate and flop over.
