Jack,    there is no color chart specifically for Iris. There are color charts from the RHS (Royal Hort Soc.) in GB, but they are very expensive and as such not used by the casual gardener. Keith Keppel has at times used these in registrations.
Descriptions are an 'art form'... seeing is believing.

to take a written description and match it with likely candidates. Some descriptions
I see are quite exotic, but not really helpful.
