|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 in
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 continue to bloom one after another each
day. Bloom time: August-September.
