The walking irises or toad-cups (Neomarica species) are members of the Iridaceae, the iris family. Neomarica are native to western Africa and South America; there are fifteen known species. In tropical areas, these shade-loving plants make great substitutes for iris.
The yellow walking iris blooms from spring to late autumn. The inflorescence arises from the base. When each inflorescence is finished flowering, it produces plantlets and arches toward the ground. The plantlets root and will bloom in a year.
