I am fascinated by iris with distinct lines.  A few years ago I visited Mid-America near Salem Oregon and Thomas Johnson said that lines were one of his goals.  Here's one that's new to my garden from Larry Lauer.  "Lovesick Blues" has beautiful violet falls on a white ground.  It put on a fine show for 8 days peaking May 7 this year.

This bloom is the first year after planting.  It must be noted that a first year bloom and good increase is no guarantee that it will establish itself well.  The original rhizome was grown professionally and is packed with energy.  It's my job to pamper it for the following years.
