Low growing dwarf crested iris (Iris cristata) are best enjoyed from a bird's eye view

These irises grow so low to the ground, a top view is almost the only one you're likely to get.

The purple comments the green very well. Beautiful irises, as well as a great banner. Thumbs up Thumbs up

You've given us a "bird's eye view" just from the banner dimensions. I imagine a carpet of these diminutive iris' must be stunning.
