Diplarrena (Iridaceae) 4b:405
Diplarrena contains two common native species.  Like many irises they are a tufted plant, with the stems flattened and the leaves in two rows. The flowers are white with purple and yellow patches near the base, 3-5 cm wide. The leaves of both species can be up to almost one metre, but D. moraea (a species of dry forests and heaths) has leaves less than 1 cm wide, whereas D. latifolia (a species of wet heaths and sedgelands) has leaves more than 1cm wide.
