Iridin is an isoflavone, a type of flavonoid. It is the 7-glucoside of irigenin and can be isolated from several species of irises like orris root, Iris florentina[2] or Iris versicolor, also commonly known as the larger blue flag. It can also be found in Iris kemaonensis.[3][4]

The compound is toxic and these plants have been mentioned as causing poisoning in humans and animals.[5]
