The cutflower irises are hybrids of several species (mostly Spanish, I 
think) and are known as Dutch irises. Many people grow them as one-year 
bedding plants, but I have some permanently in the ground in an 
out-of-the-way corner to use as cutflowers. I. latifolia (a Spanish 
species peculiarly called "English iris) is probably involved in their 
ancestry, but it doesn't last as well when cut.
