The color and morphology flower is one impressive feature the flower industry. Accumulation of pigments in flowers is determining one of the major factors in flower color. In this experiment accumulation of pigments were evaluated in the Iris species native to Iran. The following were properties were measured, accumulation of chlorophyll a, b and all , anthocyanins, carotenoids of leaves and flowers and heritability percent. The results showed that the Iris acutiloba was highest concentration anthocyanins and carotenoids of pigments than the other species. Most of the heritability was observed of the b chlorophyll pigments.
