Few garden ponds are large enough to contain this vigorous water iris. Large clumps of green leaves produce elegant, yellow flowers. Ideal for wildlife gardens, it can become invasive. It looks particularly good if planted in naturalised drifts among other moisture-loving plants. It also associates well with dark blue flowered plants. If you don't have room for a pond or bog garden, try growing it in a large container filled with water.
Looks good with:Typha gracilis
