杜若 Japanese Iris

Iris laevigata, Rabbit-Ear Iris or Kakitsubata, is found growing in shallow waters and seems to prefer marshy - still ponds. Flowers are usually blue, purple or violet (found these yellow variety in a pond near Sumadera temple) and have unique color patterns including some types with predominantly white flowers with blue spots or dark purples bordered with white.
