Just a minor aside.  The NARGS gallery has the same plant showing for Iris suaveolens and Iris attica.
(but the angle of the photo is a little differrent)  ;-)
It's blooming here in Massachusetts USA, but initally it was difficult to distinguish the greenish yellow flowers from the leaves.  (must have bought it from a catalog without photos, but it is a sturdy grower in the sand bed)

Yes, it certainly does look like it, Charles, as the backgrounds appear to the same in the two photos.
Todd, could you please look into this?

I wonder why nobody is posting any onco-iris.
Here are a few to start with:
Iris paradoxa - a collection from Armenia
Iris acutiloba ssp. acutiloba
Iris paradoxa - a collection from Lake Sevan, Armenia

Thanks for remedying that, Luc, by posting.  They are indeed gems.  Even in my cold climate, my mind wants to grow regelias or perhaps onco-regelia crosses, but I haven't built up the courage yet.  They are all stunning, in my opinion.

Walking the garden today, I seemed to have caught Iris attica in a most beautiful stage of senescence. 

In the first photo: left flower just opened, right flower one day old.
In the second photo: Three days old.  8)
