Iris laevigata. See image source here.

#25 They called me Iris laevigata, also known as Iris gmelinii, and Iris dierinckii. I pay homage to the male botanists Dierinck (I couldn’t find his records), and Johann Friedrich Gmelin, Johann Georg Gmelin, Samuel Gottlieb Gmelin, or Carl Christian Gmelin. They first catalogued me in 1839.
