Iris domestica (syn. Belamcanda chinensis) / Hiougii ヒオウギ

Iris domestica is a perennial herb found in sunny grasslands in hilly districts, with its horizontally-extending rhizomes beneath the ground surface. Leaves, sword-shaped, 8-13 in number, overlap each other to form fans, and flower stalks, 0.6-1m in size, ascend proximally with 2-3 orange flowers, 3.4cm in diameter, having dark orange-red scattered spots inside. The flowers bloom in the morning and fall in the evening; however, new buds bloom each day. Bloom time: August-September.
