    Genus of about 300 species of erect rhizomatous and bulbous perennials, sometimes with fleshy roots, widespread in a great variety of habitats in the Northern Hemisphere. The Iris bicolor is a perennial, rhizomatous herbaceous plant, which over time forms a large clump composed of numerous pale green, linear, thin leaves, up to 80-120 cm long and only 2-3cm wide, divided by a showy central vein.
