Poor neglected Dear Jane

My Dear Jane blocks have been languishing, unattended in their little box for weeks. I am far behind the group, & won't even count how many I need to do to catch up. But I will whittle away slowly at them when I can - they are always very calming & enjoyable to return to.
Fabric is 'Look & Learn' by Sandy Klop of American Jane by Moda.
Fabric is from an old Robyn Pandolph line, called 'Bed of Roses'.
Fabric is from 'The Merrimack Collection' by Judie Rothermal for Marcus Fabrics.

Can you name this plant? Specimen #2

Genius points to my lovely friend Belinda who identified Specimen #1 as Iris Japonica or 'Poor Man's Orchid'. The leaves are so different to any other iris I have seen.  I wonder if she will know what this is: Small tree, lilac pea-like flowers, prolific seed pods dangling from the branches, heart-shaped leaves.
I confess I found one of these in flower in a nursery today, so now know what it is, but I will test to see how clever you all are anyway!
