Iris savannarum

Family:IRIDACEAE
Species:Iris savannarum Small
Common Name:SAVANNA IRIS; PRAIRIE IRIS
Plant Notes:Iris savannarum is common in Florida and is characterized by its bright green non-evergreen leaves, sepal tips more acute to acuminate, and capsules 6-10 cm long with 6 winglike ridges. The rarer plant, I. hexagona s.s., is characterized by its yellow-green and evergreen leaves, sepals tips less acute to rounded, and capsules 2.5-3.5 cm long and strongly hexagonal. Data from some microsatellites show that I. savannarum is composed of multiple lineages which likely can or do interbreed (Meerow et al. 2011, 2017).
