I grow Neomarica northiana, N. caerulea, and N. sabini. The first two  
are mature and the N. caerulea blooms every summer once the weather  
gets hot enough. It can actually take quite a bit of cold. I've seen  
it growing in the ground in Austin, TX and the owner says it survives  
down to around 20°F. Summers in Austin are very warm and humid, so it  
probably loves the summers there.

Mauro Peixoto has photos of the following species (as well as two  
very nice looking unnamed species):

Neomarica candida…

Neomarica glauca…

Neomarica pardina…

Neomarica pulchella…

Neomarica sabini…

He sells seeds of some of these from time to time (that's where I got  
my N. sabini which looks large enough now that it might bloom next  
summer--I can't wait). His seeds are very good and I get very good  
germination from them.
