yellow flag iris

---
These are beautiful Yellow Flag Iris (Iris pseudacorus) growing in a nearby wet-land. Unlike the Blue Flag Iris, which is native to the U.S. northeast, I. pseudacorus is a non-native, invasive plant. It is fast-growing and fast-spreading and can out compete other wetland plants, forming almost impenetrable thickets. http://aquat1.ifas.ufl.edu/seagrant/iripse2.html

blue flag iris

My sister gave me these Blue Flag Iris (Iris versicolor) from her garden about 14 years ago. They grow in the full sun on the south side of my house. They have formed two large clumps that Skippy likes to flatten down into a comfy sleeping mat.
