 vPlants
http://www.vplants.org/

Starting in 2001, three institutions in the Chicago region began to
create
the vPlants database, which allows interested web-surfing parties to
browse
through various data from 90,000 plant specimens. Even more impressive
is
the fact that users can also view digital images for almost 50,000 of
the
specimens.  Currently, these institutional partners are also in the
process
of adding 12,000 fungus specimen records. From their well-designed
homepage,
visitors can search for plant names by family, genus, or common name.
Additionally, visitors can also browse a glossary of terms and a set of
external links. The database brings the plant life of the region to life
through its mix of visual materials and well-written descriptions.
Neophyte
botanists will appreciate its accessibility, and more experienced
persons
can find items of use here as well.

Got a few hits using common name iris and also got pretty much the same
using family Iridaceae. Photos are of preserved specimens.
