"flat" iris

As I walked into the gardens of the Stevens-Coolidge Place yesterday morning I was surprised to see several beds of iris. The bloom on both my favorite bearded iris and the non-bearded iris is long gone, but there was sea of purple wearing a flatter flower. Luckily searching for "flat iris" came up with what I think is the proper name. These beauties are known as Japanese iris.
