Yellow Flag (Iris pseudacorus) INTRODUCED. Growing in a wetland habitat. <br />
I was honestly pretty shocked to see this invasive flower in a nature center&#039;s wetland. I may have to write a letter!<br />

INTRODUCED. Growing in a wetland habitat.
I was honestly pretty shocked to see this invasive flower in a nature center's wetland. I may have to write a letter!

  1. May 10 and you've got iris blooming albeit a non-native invasive species. The native Iris versicolor here is just beginning to poke a few leaves out of the ground.

    We have Iris pseudacorus here in MN, too, and it is considered an invasive species although I've never seen large colonies, just a few plants here and there.

''Iris pseudacorus'' is a species in the genus ''Iris'', of the family Iridaceae. It is native to Europe, western Asia and northwest Africa. Its specific epithet, meaning "false acorus," refers to the similarity of its leaves to those of ''Acorus calamus'', as they have a prominently veined mid-rib and sword-like shape.
