Can anyone ID these flowers? I found them both in Spring Bluff FP yesterday.

I know this is an Iris, but the lack of yellow on the petals and the yellow tuft aren't right for Blue Flag Iris.

I think this is Helianthemum canadense, but the leaves seem too small. A congener, perhaps?

Would that be a cultivated strain, Bruce?
