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

(Yellow Flag Iris - 01a) The leaves of the yellow Iris are long, flat and upright with a sword-like appearance. A flower bud can be seen in the upper left of the photo. According to the literature, only one flower grows at the terminal, or upper end of each flower stalk. The frilly white wildflower growing to the left of the yellow iris flower is white bedstraw. (We thought that some of our visitors might wonder.)
