Raising a Yellow Flag…

Yellow flag, or yellow iris is a really beautiful native pond wildflower common in wetlands and marshes and is widespread across Norfolk. It can also make for a wonderful addition to wildlife garden ponds. It can become a little too vigorous in particularly favourable conditions so may be best grown in containers in smaller ponds or bog gardens. Fortunately mine has plenty of companion planting and competition that has so far seems to have kept it in check.
