It is absolutely a Louisiana Iris. It looks like a wild collected hybrid. Definitely not a modern cultivar. My best guess is Iris vinicolor. Even tho it has a species name it is a natural occurring hybrid. Check out this page at Zydeco Louisiana Iris Garden. http://www.zydecoirises.com/IndexPage/SpeciesList.html#Vinicolor
