X is for Xiphium Iris

That’s right! I actually have a topic for X.

The Xiphium Iris is also known as the Spanish Iris. It grows to about 18-24 inches (45-61 cm). It most commonly blooms in purple, but can also bloom in yellow, blue,  or white. Some parts of the plant are poisonous so I wouldn’t suggest eating eat. And like most plants, it can cause skin irritation, in some people, from handling it.

Here are some pictures!
