Savannosiphon is a genus of flowering plants in the family Iridaceae, first described as a new species in 1980. It contains only one known species, Savannosiphon euryphylla, native to tropical Africa (Zaire, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe).[1][2][3][4]

The genus name, derived from the word savanna and the Greek word siphon (meaning "tube") alludes to its habitat and the structure of its perianth tube.[5]
