The Iris you pictured is a genus in the Iris family
known as Dietes. It is a tropical and it will be
interesting if it survives an Indianapolis winter. But
with global warming who knows. You might try planting
it up against a foundation. It is evergreen and can
bloom throughout the yaer in a conservatory.
