What is Iris pseudacorus
Iris pseudacorus, yellow iris, or Kishobu Ayame (Scientific name: Iris pseudacorus) is a perennial plant in the family Iridaceae, which is native to Europe. It is an extractive plant that grows in shallow water such as lakes and marshes. The root lobes protrude in two rows and have a sword-shaped tip. In late spring to early summer, yellow iris-shaped flowers are produced at the tips of the flower stems, with three long outer cloaks hanging down and three short inner cloaks rising up. It is a beautiful flower, but it is a naturalized plant and has a strong fertility, so it is designated as an invasive species that needs attention by the Environment Agency.
