Dig It-Pseudocorus-Yellow Flag Iris

Pseudocorus, commonly known as Yellow Flag iris, is the only water iris with yellow flowers. Varieties range in color from ivory yellow to deep golden yellow and bloom time is mid-season. The most commonly seen in our area average 36" in height, but there are varieties that can reach heights of 6 feet or more.

Although Pseudocorus are fantastic water iris, they tolerate a number of conditions from shallow water to a moist garden bed planted along with Siberian iris. They are ideal for that wet, sunny spot in the yard where you may have difficulty getting anything to survive. This vigorous perennial will remain a steadfast grower for years on end.
