Iris

Tennessee recognized the iris (Genus Iridaceae) as the state cultivated flower in 1933. The iris flower comes in a variety of colors, but the purple iris is commonly accepted as the state flower of Tennessee. "When it's Iris Time in Tennessee" (by Willa Waid Newman) is one of Tennessee's state songs.
