Iris Nazareth – A Famous Israeli Flower

One of the most beautiful flowers in Israel is the Iris Bismarckiana, known locally as the Iris Nazareth because it grows mainly on the mountains east of Nazareth.

Its splendor and beauty are the reasons that “The Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel” choose the Iris Nazareth as its logo. These pictures were taken on the hill just behind the cemetery of Nazareth Ilit, the Jewish town adjacent to the historical Nazareth.

The Iris Nazareth can be found in the short period around the last two weeks of March and the beginning of April.
