Yellow Iris

June 2000-- I spotted this and a few others along Skyline Drive near camp for a trail maintainers' workshop I was attending. I have not seen this flower anywhere else and have always wondered if these were transplanted domestics. It most certainly is not the yellow bearded iris common to this section of the country.

Re: Wow!

Thank you! I've only seen that iris in that one spot just one time, but I haven't been there since, either. Spring here brings a great flower display, including many different types of irises.

Re: This Is ...

That's a pretty nice comment coming from someone who's got several that could vie for that title easily. Thanks!

Re: This Is ...

He most definitely does. Check out his wildflower albums.

I've seen irises in the mountains of Virginia, but nothing that looked like this one.

Re: Cool!

I've come to think it was planted. Efforts to find a wild species like this online have been unsuccessful. The only wild yellow irises I have found look nothing like this. It makes me wonder if I should delete the picture since it probably isn't a true wildflower.
