Genus: Iris.

Species: Iris pumila.

I. pumila is a compact, rhizomatous, bearded iris to 15cm tall with slightly glaucous, widely sword-shaped leaves 3-15cm long. In mid-spring, a 1cm long flower stem bears 1-2, long-tubed flowers, each 2.5-5cm wide. Flowers are variable in colour from violet-purple, blue to yellow or white with most having a darker spot pattern on the falls and yellow or blue beards.
