I have the following iris that were here when I moved in to the house 20 years ago.

This one is very tall and often falls over.

This one is very aggressive and spreads everywhere.

I think the third one is Cardinal, especially after looking at it growing outside. So we have: unknown, Indian Chief?, Cardinal? and Amas?.

No the third one is not Cardinal, it is probably Mme Henri Cayeux. Check for PBF, Mme Henri has alot. And Cardinal has none. Mme Henri is very aggressive and grows quite freely. Cardinal is a bit of a slug and hard to propigate.
The first one may be Blue Gown or possibly Missouri.
