One thing is still missing from the Neomarica page.

There is no mention of the fragrance of the flowers of some Neomarica. The
one grown as an old-fashioned houseplant under the names Apostle plant or
walking iris (is this N. gracilis?)  is known for having a strong
lily-of-the-valley fragrance.

I would change the wiki myself, but I'm not sure about the identity of the
plant in question, nor do I know if it is the only fragrant species. 

Perhaps someone who actually grows these plants can fill in the blanks.
