Iris germanica L.

Coefficient of Conservatism: *
Coefficient of Wetness: 5
Wetness Index: UPL
Physiognomy: Ad P-Forb

The common garden Iris rarely (or one might say barely) escapes from cultivation, but can doubtless be found in more counties than those mapped. First collected in 1936 in Kalamazoo Co. Not all garden irises should be called I. germanica, and the name is not used here in a strict sense. Works on cultivated plants should be consulted by those desiring more understanding of this species.
