How about a real oldie....Jet Fire.  It is about as close to red and white
as I have ever seen.

Someone had asked about a red-and-white iris, although conceding that
burgandy might be the closest approximation.

I couldn't remember the name, but the plicata Tennison Ridge is a nice
burgandy-on-white (though the falls are a bit narrow).  I keep thinking I
should add it to my garden, but it never quite makes the cut.  Probably a
few similar entries.

Another possibility would be the smoky white standards and russet falls of
Latin Hideaway or Dream Lord.  Again, there may be better examples.

There are a few white veined wine-colored luminatas, but the color is more
of a patterning and doesn't really provide the visual contrast.

How about red-bearded whites (Santa, Heaven, .....)?
