I too like the peacock blue-green color on those.  That WOULD look nice on bearded iris. :-)

Here are three images of Alan McMurtrie's Iris reticulata hybrid 'Sea Green'

The third image shows how the color changes as the flower ages.

My wife mentioned that a green flower wouldn't stand out much against green foliage.
I agree, but I'm more impressed with that peacock blue-green color of the style arms of this hybrid. Wouldn't that be cool, out on the falls and/or standards of a bearded iris!!!
