Iris kashmiriana from Kashmir, similar to I. germanica but differing in green (not scarious in upper half) longer 7-9 cm as against up to 5 cm in I. germanica) bracts, white flowers with yellowish claw with white to yellowish beard.
The species is commonly grown in Kashmir.

Several species of Iris are grown to decorate graveyards and as such the common kashmiri name for the genus is Mazamond (Mazar-Graveyard, Mond-root or underground swollen portion; most species are rhizome bearing)

Quite an interesting fact

Wonderful set of Irises from Kashmir sir and also thank you for all the information.
