Iris croatica is a bearded rhizomatous species of iris (subgenus Iris) endemic to Croatia.

It grows mostly in the woods of Downy Oak (Quercus pubescens) and Black Hophornbeam (Ostrya carpinifolia) on dolomite and limestone soils.[1] It is known from hilly parts of continental Croatia including the hills of Samoborsko gorje (near Samobor), the hill Cesargradska gora (near Klanjec), near Josipdol, on the hill of Strahinjčica (near Radoboj), and at Zagrebačko gorje and Žumberačko gorje.[1] It was described in 1962 by botanists Ivo and Marija Horvat.[1][2]

It is on the Croatian list of strictly protected plants, among nine Iridaceae species.[3]
