Iris is a genus of between 200-300 species of flowering plants with showy flowers which takes its name from the Greek word for a rainbow, referring to the wide variety of flower colours found among the many species. As well as being the scientific name, iris is also very widely used as a common name and refers to all Iris species as well as some closely related genera.
Information source

L'iris jaunâtre (Iris lutescens), appelé également iris nain, est une plante appartenant au genre Iris et à la famille des Iridacées. Comme son nom l'indique, ses fleurs sont généralement de couleur jaune pâle, mais il existe aussi des variétés à fleurs violettes ou blanchâtres, ou encore bicolores. C'est une plante méditerranéenne poussant en principe sur le calcaire, dans les pelouses rocailleuses sèches. Elle est très cultivée dans les jardins.
Information source

El lliri menut es una planta de tija simple i uniflora que no sol superar els 25 cm, la flor recorda la del Iris germanica, té les fulles planes i glauques, habita les garrigues clares i pradells de plantes anuals en indrets secs i sovint de sol prim. De vegades trobem poblacions amb totes les flors d'un blau violaci, de vegades amb totes les flors grogues i altres amb un barreja de palntes am flors grogues i amb flors violàcies.
En realitat es tracta d'un cercle de formes molt complex que encara no està ben aclarit.

Hello Ferran,
I'm very fond of Irises, there are so many different species and this one is such a lovely blue colour. Excellent sharp details of the flower and nice soft colours of the leaves. I like the little bud at the bottom too. Excellent composition.
TFS and best wishes,Ulla
