Species Iris - Beginner's Primer Request

Someone in an earlier post to the IRIS-L mentioned that they would
appreciate more talk about species irises.  To get the ball rolling, could
anyone who grows or has grown a fair number of species recommend and
describe some easy and forgiving species which would thrive in the hands of
iris beginners?

I'm looking for a response along the lines of "Seven species irises that no
self-respecting irisarian should be without or should have an excuse to be
without", but feel free to list and describe as many as you can.  I already
grow "Iris cristata" (white and purple), "Iris verna", "Iris
tectorum"(purple), and "Iris pseudacorus".
