Iris pseudoacorus. (Yellow Flag Iris)
Iris psuedoacorus is a hardy perennial native to the UK. Its leaves are large green and strap like growing up to a metre tall in the summer. The flowers emerge above the leaves in spring and offer a gorgeous splash of bright yellow. Enjoyed by bees and hoverflies. After the flowers have gone over attractive seed heads can also be enjoyed before the plant dies back for its winter dormancy.
These like full sun or part shade and grow in soil or in water. They are great in and around ponds and streams.
As with all herbaceous perennials the appearance of the plant will vary depending on the time or year and its natural phase of growth.
Shipped in a 9cm pot.
Upon arrival unpack and water place in a cool semi shady spot to allow to recover from shipping. After a day or two these can be planted out. Dig a hole the size of the pot and fill with water. Sprinkle a handful of slow-release food granules into the hole (this is optional but will give the plants an added boost and can be purchased with your order) soak the plant pot and remove the whole plant and its soil in one place directly into the hole back firm and firm in well to ensure there are no air pockets. Water in. Should the weather be hot during planting further watering may be necessary. Otherwise simply enjoy and trim back old flowers head once they have gone over.
