Iris missouriensis (Blue iris)

Beautiful pale to dark blue flower on slender stems

In native habitats, the perennial blue iris can be found near vernal pools, which are places where water accumulates in winter and spring before drying up.  Found in ponderosa pine forests and in sagebrush communities, it has slender leaf blades and stems topped by a single flower with pale to dark blue-purple petals and white sepals with purplish veining.  Spreads  by rhizomes.  Found in areas wet in spring and along stream banks.  Photo by Ben Legler
