Irises fall into several categories and do not all have the same growing requirements.
Bearded Irises of all sizes like sun and are happy in dry soils. They grow from rhizomes.

Dutch Irises grow from bulbs and can handle partial shade - they are more picky about their soil than bearded Irises, preferring a better quality growing ground.

Siberian Irises are excellent garden plants from the beardless group of iris, easy to grow in most soils, and any position that is not too dry, but fairly sunny.

Iris foetidus actually prefers to grow in shade, and is not usually grown for its flowers but its seed heads, which are spectacular in autumn/winter.
