Iris Family, Iridaceae
There is only one native Iris family species in Finland: yellow iris, which is a member of genus Iris. Several other irises and species from the family’s other genera can be found, but they are escapes from cultivation, in other words species that have established themselves outside gardens and yards such as crocii, blue-eyed grasses and irises. In a global context the monocotyledonous Iris family has around 80 genera and over 2,000 species.
