Plenty of Iris flowers both native and “imported” to our state may be found around ditches, along edges of ponds or river, and moist or fertile places during Spring seasons.

The well known 5 species of Iris in our areas are:

- Iris giganticaerulea.
- Iris hexagona.
- Iris nelsonii.
- Iris brevicaulis and Iris fulva.

Dutch Iris with scientific name, Iris Hollandica is a hybrid species by combining European Species (Iris xiphium) and North African species (Iris tingitana).

Iris xiphium is native to Spain and Portugal, while Iris tingitana is native to Morocco and Algeria.

The Dutch firm called as “Van Tubergen” had distributed the crossed breeding Iris flowers to North America around 19th century, a long time ago.
