White or Pink Iris

I am looking for a white or pink iris, preferably with an evergreen leaf that will grow in my area (Northern Virginia - zone 7 but just barely - prefer something hardy to zone 5 or 6.

Hi there evpoole,
How tall would you like the iris? Do you prefer them with lots of ruffles or classic- more orchid-like? The whites can come with white, yellow, orange, or blue beards, which might also make a difference.

Pink irises tend to be warm pinks or raspberry-toned. What shade of pink were you thinking?

Take a look at the link below to get some color ideas.

I have a very pretty pink ruffled iris that I will be dividing a little later

Let me know if you might like a few rhizomes for postage.

I don't know the name. Click pic to see a bigger image.
