Iris

See list of 11 species in this genus

Older literature sometimes referred to the sepals as “falls” and the petals as “standards”. 
These are superfluous terms and are abandoned here. Recent phylogenetic analysis showed that Belamcanda is nested within Iris (Wilson 2004). Two specimens have been seen 
that were determined as Iris prismatica ×I. versicolor—9 Jul 1923, Cheever & Knowlton s.n. 
 ( NEBC!) was I. versicolor and Sanford 10009 ( NEBC!) is doubtfully as determined. Reference: 
Henderson (2002).
