Anyone know these Lou. Iris? Plants were given to me over 30 yrs. ago with no name. Rusty, Deep blue, Deep violet are what I call them. Rusty always bloomed once a year. Two years ago one clump of Rusty started blooming twice. Thank you for any advice.

Your best chance of finding out names may be by going to Zydeco Louisiana iris.
http://zydecoirises.com/IndexPage/Catalog.htm

Another choice might be Iris City Gardens:

Your last photo might be Black Gamecock. It's an oldie

chickhill, the red one looks a lot like 'Creole Flame' which is an older iris (1973). However, varying conditions can sometimes make it appear different.

They send good plants and very nice sized clumps, which have always done very well (too well) here!
