I don't think there is much information available on that topic.  I assume 
by "self fertile" you mean can a flower pollinate itself (as opposed to 2 
different plants of the same species pollinating each other)?

There's an iris-species group (mailing list) on yahoogroups that you might 
want to investigate.  (Or I can post the message for you, if you wish it.)

Good luck!
