Wild Flowers of Sleepy Hollow Lake
Yellow Iris or Yellow Flag (Iris pseudacorus)

(Yellow Flag Iris - 01) On 31 May 2004 we spotted two clumps of yellow flag or yellow iris growing along the edge of Sleepy Hollow Lake with other wild flowers and grasses. This was the first time in our 31 years of being here that we have seen a yellow iris. This is the only species of yellow iris that grows wild. Yellow iris grow to heights of between one and three feet.
