State Flower – The IRIS, genus Iridaceae, is an herbaceous perennial of which there are about 170 species, including several North American varieties, the most common of which is the Blue Flag. While there are several different colors among the iris, and the act naming the iris as the state flower did not name a particular color, by common acceptance the PURPLE IRIS is considered the state flower.
