Description
Irises and their relatives are lily-like plants related to the orchid and narcissus families, with whom they share a propensity for large, brightly colored, attractive flowers—many have long lasting flowers, and iris, gladiolus, and freesia are among the most important cut-flower crops in the world. The diversity of Iridaceae is described here in detail by leading expert Peter Goldblatt and illustrated in 233 color plates, supplemented by expert line drawings. He explains how the intricate flowers of the iris family are finely adapted for pollination by animals hummingbirds and butterflies to beetles and bees; the close connection between flower form and pollination biology reveals how the marvelous range of flower colors, shapes, and scents are vital to the the species.
