References:

This plant was first described by Boris Fedschenko in Bulletin de l'Herbier Boissier, ser. 2, iv. page 917. in 1904. But the name he chose, Iris coerulea, had been used by Spach, Hist. Veg. Phan. xiii. 50 (1846) for a plant, which is a I. pumila hybrid, and therefore was renamed by Foster as Iris albomarginata in reference to the white margins of the leaves a characteristic of several of the species in the Juno section.
