Gardens Yellow water iris
yellow water iris (Iris pseudoacorus) has gone berserk. Help!
Yellow Water iris is now a noxious weed and can no longer be sold.
You are finding out why I am afraid. You really have no option but
to dig, dig and dig again! I do not like the use of weedkillers
around ponds, as it is too easy to kill everything. Be careful how
you dispose of the dug up plants too, or you will soon have great
clumps of it growing in the compost heap.
