There is a plant making the rounds of local gardens under the name Iris japonica 'Eco Improved'. In the old days Iris japonica was not thought of as being winter hardy in this USDA zone 7 area, so I did some Googling to check out the history of this plant. 

What I learned is that there are two names being used for forms of Iris japonica with "Eco" as part of the name, 'Eco Improved' and 'Eco Easter'. 

Are 'Eco Improved' and 'Eco Easter' the same plant? 

I would like to submit an image for the wiki, but now I'm unsure of the name.
