Botanical Information:

Family: Iridaceae
Genus: Patersonia
Species: fragilis

Meaning of name:
Patersonia, after William Paterson (1755–1810), a Scottish horticulturalist who collected botanical, geological and insect specimens for Joseph Banks while stationed on Norfolk Island
fragilis is from Latin: fragilis, fragile, brittle. A reference to the flower

Patersonia fragilis is native to southeastern Australia, from southern Queensland to South Australia and in Tasmania. Common names are Day Iris and Short Purple-flag.

The flowers are deep purple and appear from spring to mid summer. While individual flowers are open for less than a day, many are produced from the one stem. All plants in the same area will flower at once and make an impressive display.

The plant prefers moist heathland and open woodland, and is regarded as an attractive plant for rockeries, water features, and bog gardens.
