Yellow iris bulb.

The yellow iris or marsh iris is characterized by its upright habit, its bright yellow flowers and its long, ensiform (sword-shaped) green leaves with a protruding midrib. It is a plant which grows in clumps and whose stem can bear 4 to 12 flowers.

Iris pseudacorus flourishes in humid or even flooded areas (immersion up to 40 cm deep), with its “feet” in the water. It can then reach two meters in height. Its cultivation outside of water is however possible, but it will not exceed 60 cm.

The shimmering pre-summer flowering of the iris pseudacorus is followed in July/August by the fruits, elongated capsules with three compartments, containing numerous seeds.

Iris pseudacorus is a hardy plant that is easy to grow. It can grow in partial shade, but will do best in the light and warmth of the sun.

If planting is done in the ground, space the plants at least 50 cm apart.

Iris pseudacorus resists harsh winters and does not require special care, apart from its need for water. Every three or four years, in the fall, divide the clump that becomes too dense and replant the plants further away. If you leave the iris plants in one place for too long, the soil becomes depleted and the flowering decreases.

After flowering, do not hesitate to cut off the faded flowers; while preserving the aesthetic appearance of your beds you avoid exhaustion of the plant.

Did you know ?

  • In the past, the rhizomes of the marsh iris were used for their emetic, diuretic and anthelmintic properties. Today, it is used very rarely and only by prescription because it can cause violent vomiting and diarrhea.
  • Micro-organisms are attached to the rhizomes which have the power to purify the water, hence the use of Iris pseudacorus in lagoon systems.
