Iris Xyridion section (Steppe or Spuria irises)

These are good, easy garden plants for sunny places and good drainage, mainly from central Asia, but with some from as far west as western Europe or as far east as China. They can make clumps of tough leaves above the mat of rhizomes, and in many species the flowers are in relatively short stems, no taller than the leaves.
