I believe this to be a Dwarf Crested Iris but it is difficult to tell due to the storm damage it sustained. It was also difficult to photograph due to the foliage that it was buried in. It was the only flower I found during that hike to the summit of Table Rock Mountain. Again I thank you in advanced for any help you may give in correctly identifying this bloom.

Iris cristata is also listed but does not match your pic.

Thanks again Silversurfer. Your knowledge has proven invaluable to me on numerous occasions. I read the pdf you linked to but I must admit it was all Latin to me. Hilarious!
