Is this native flag Iris

Posted: 24/05/2017 at 18:57

No, I don't think that's our native pseudoacorus ... wrong shade of yellow and  petals the wrong shape 

Yours looks like a bearded iris to me, but there are thousands of varieties.

What is this Plant??

Any thorns/prickles?  Looks a lot like a self-seeded blackberry or possibly a raspberry sucker to me

Mysterious plants in my garden

It's one of the willow herbs ...... pretty if you have a large acreage, but if you have a more 'normal sized garden' I'd pull them out before they get the chance to seed ........ they spread everywhere!

Garden designers work for clients all over the world ... some do not want or cannot have lush greenery and flowers ... Chelsea is a chance for designers to showcase what can be done in more difficult environments.

Oh dear!  I had a feeling that might be the case ..........   keep a separate sprayer!!!

I don't spray any insects ... the birds, hoverflies, lacewings and  ladybirds deal with them for me ....

Drought?  It takes a lot of moisture to produce a flower and it's been a very dry winter and spring.
