Have you ever tried varigated lierope along your ditch line.  It would take some maintenance but it is hardy and has a pretty blue flower.  Trade you some for and iris, I have lots of it or send some for postage.

  I've bought stuff from Guernys, (seeds and plants of crown vetch for the 
  sides of my drainage ditch so it wouldn't need to be mowed - that's what they 
  use on the state roads here in MD).  Some of the stuff was pretty poor, but I 
  now have the whole side of the ditch covered in flowers in spite of them.  I 
  got some rose bushes from Lowes that died, and some that did well.  I ordered 
  some stuff from Burpee that usually did well, and I think I ordered some 
  flower carpet stuff that never bloomed at all but I can't remember who I 
  ordered it from.  I usually spread the order around with a few of a plant 
  from one source and a few from another.
