English Iris

I've found that Iris latifolia ("English Iris", actually from Iberia) 
does best in rich border conditions with a modicum of summer water. I 
had three color forms at one time -- the two Jim Waddick mentioned 
and a light lavender one. I saw the pink one but did not like it; 
many "pink" forms of normally blue-lavender flowers are unattractive to me.

I got my original bulbs from McClure and Zimmerman, an American 
importer, and they probably still offer these.
