The copper iris is likely the best known of the Louisiana iris species and is a hybrid parent to many prized cultivars.

A semi-evergreen freshwater swampland species, it can be found in wetlands and stream sides across the South. Populations extend as far north as Ohio and Illinois and as far south as Florida and Texas. Germplasm from more northern populations is hardier than those from the far South.
