Wild Iris

Iris are some of the most spectacular flowers in the world. In the high country of Arizona, there are wild iris that have striking blue markings. The cultivated varieties are more showy but the basic form, color and all of the other attractions of this flower are here in the wild variety. These plants and their 300 or so relatives live all around the world in the Northern Hemisphere. I love irises and that includes the wild varieties.

  1. Iris reminds me rain in Japan. I didn't know they live in the dry land too.
