Our beloved and familiar native yellow flag iris. An easy plant to grow, with the typical long mid-green iris leaves and bearing yellow flowers in late spring to early summer which are attractive to bees. When allowed plenty of room it is quite a large plant, but to a certain extent it can be contained for smaller ponds by regularly dividing and re-potting. It will grow in surprisingly shady positions - here in Norfolk it is widely seen growing in the shadowy light of woodland streams - but requires sun in order to flower well.

Please note that all irises may cause skin irritation and are somewhat poisonous if eaten.

If designing a planting scheme, we recommend approximately 1 Iris pseudacorus plant per square foot of ground or per linear foot of pond edge. Read more here on how to pot and care for your plant.
