Awaiting original catalog description
From Simonet, bulletin de la Société des Amateurs de Jardins Alpin (1954. N°9): "IRIS POGONIRIS de Rocailles - A - POGONIRIS NAINS - I. reichenbachii Heuff. - C'est l'I. chamaeiris des Balkans.
Il se distingue de celui-ci par ses spathes fortement carénées et divergentes. Il est acaule ou caulescent, assez florifère, biflore, à fleurs jaunes ou brun-pourpre (I. balkana). Il est assez rustique et peut-être un peu moins précoce que l'I. chamaeiris; surtout l'I. balkana qui fleurit vers la fin d'avril."


Iris reichenbachii Heuffel.
