As several people have noted your orange plant is Iris
fulva. It is one of several species that grow in
Louisiana. Currently botanists are saying there are
five species of Irises that belong to the Series
Hexagonae which is called the Louisiana Irises. There
is also a dissenting view that five more species in
this Series grow in Florida. I hope this helps.
Another bit of confusion is the botanical name given
to hybrids of this series is Iris xlouisianica

Thanks Bill & Harold - Now I'm sort of confused.  I
thought Louisana Iris
were a 'species'.  If I. fulva is a species, then what
is the correct word
to describe Louisiana Iris.

Also is there a website where I can learn more about
Louisiana Iris?

Fulva is a species of
Louisiana iris. LAs prefer wet, acid beds rich in
organic matter. They can
take full sun but can also take some shade. Under a 
tree is not the best
location for an LA.

  I'm pretty sure this is iris fulva, an iris native
to the USA. Also, you
will find it to be a very adaptable plant. Will grow
in shade, sun, and
soil types. Likes moist soil but will survive dry
