I have post this flower once before, but at that time, I have no idea what it is. It is a native plant of China and has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. It has antibiotic, anti-inflammatory function and used mainly for ailment of throat and lung.
It is quite pretty and now widely planted as an ornamental plant. It is the sole species of genus Belamcanda. However, through the modern DNA analysis, it has been reclassified into genius of iris and renamed as Iris domestica. Luckily its Chinese name still stay the same.
