What is Iris croatica
Iris croatica (scientific name: Iris croatica), endemic to Croatia, is an evergreen perennial herb in the family Iridaceae . It has well-developed rhizomes with thick, green, sword-shaped rhizomatous leaves that crawl horizontally. From May to June, a slender flower stalk emerges from among the leaves and produces six-petaled flowers at the top of the stem. The flowers are dark purple with white veins on the throat. The beards are whitish yellow. It looks similar to German iris (scientific name: Iris germania). No photo is available, so an illustration is provided.
