Mikoikoi, New Zealand Iris
A relatively common and widely distributed plant in New Zealand, it is found in open situations on cliffs, along riverbanks and near the coast as well as in montane forests or occasionally even as an epiphyte. It grows as a dense cluster of narrow, yellowish or reddish-green leaves to about 1 m (3 ft.) tall. The inflorescences grow slightly taller than the leaves and hold many pretty, small, white flowers. It is an easy plant in cultivation and tolerates severe freezes.
