Iris is a genus of 260–300 species of flowering plants with showy flowers. This is a large group of mostly hardy perennials, some of which are bulbous, and others rhizomatous. These beautiful plants grow wild in the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Their name is taken from Iris, a rainbow, and refers to the beauty and variety of the flowers. The leaves are usually sword-shaped; the purple, white, or yellow flowers have three upright inner petals and three outward- and downward-curving sepals. The wild yellow iris is called a flag.
