Iris versicolor, or the blue flag flower, is a clump-forming iris. Purple iris, poison flag, larger blue flag, harlequin blue flag, and northern blue flag iris are all names for this exquisite flower.
Iris blossoms are believed by some people to symbolize energy, with the three components symbolizing knowledge, faith, and bravery. Their name is derived from the word 'flagge' which means 'reed' or 'rush'. The southern blue flag iris has the scientific name Iris virginica.
Blue Irish is a herbaceous perennial plant that grows to a height of 4-31.5 in (10-80 cm). The roots of the plant are fibrous. Its rootlets are long, thin, and straightforward. The stem is straight, not much higher than the ground, and it has basal leaves that are more than 0.4 in (1 cm) wide.
Most of the leaves are basal, although there are one or two scattered along the stem. The sword-like leaves are about 1 in (2.5 cm) wide and 12-36 in (30 cm-91 cm) long, standing straight or arching out from the base and usually purple-red at the base. Stem leaves virtually never appear above the flowers. While the seed pods grow, the blossoming stems that emerge from the base are smooth and robust, with a waxy surface.
Iris flowers are often blue to blue-violet or red-purple in color. The darker edges of the three massive petal-like things diminish toward the bottom, leaving a pale yellowish to the greenish area in the neck with visible blue-purple veins emerging from it. The sepal's upper lip is shorter and curls up like a shoehorn.
The fruit is a three-angled oblong capsule with two rows of tightly packed seeds within each cell. They are only a few inches long and broad. The seeds are huge, brown, and spherical, with a flattened form.
The plant is also known as snake lily. The northern blue flag has medicinal properties too, but there is no scientific evidence regarding the safety of its consumption by animals and humans alike. It is believed by some people to help with skin issues, liver problems, and other issues, however, not enough research has been done on this plant.
