Quite a challenge.  I feel a strong tendency to pick an iris as
striking when it is something that is off the beaten path, at
least the path around my own area, and so I have been struck 
by seeing I. korolkowii, I. sofarana (I _think_ that's what it was), 
and I. confusa.  Spurias tend to be striking too on their merits,
and some of them will actually grow here--I. carthaliniae,
I. graminea, and Belise are striking in their structural elegance.
I. pseudacorus Beuron is certainly one you'd notice.
Other good beardless have some striking things about them--
Shaker's Prayer for interesting plant form, Mysterious Monique
for saturated color, Crystal Halo for garden visibilty.
The beardeds that I see as striking--Dusky Challenger, 
Bumblebee Deelite, and Reminiscense--just don't seem to
jump out from among their neighbors as much as the others,
but I'm keeping them.
