Yellow Iris - pretty but invasive

Yellow iris or Yellow flag (Iris pseudacorus) is in full bloom, but don’t let its good looks fool you! We’ve received several recent calls about it growing in wild places. Read the short blog by Don Lehman about yellow iris sightings in Lake George…

If you see yellow iris growing in the wild in the Adirondack region, please report the location to Brendan Quirion at bquirion@tnc.org. Brendan can also provide guidance to landowners on proper management and permitting.
