Sisyrinchium

 

a genus of plants of the family Iridaceae. The plants are perennial herbs having a short rhizome and a bunch of stiff radical linear-ensiform leaves. The regular flowers are brightly colored and have a six-parted perianth. The three-celled ovary contains many seeds. There are approximately 100 species, distributed mainly in the tropics and sub-tropics of the New World. One species occurs in the USSR. Some species are used as early flowering outdoor perennials. The plants can be propagated by pieces of the rhizome and by seeds.
