I can see it - I like the golden leaved form. I had to use all my will power earlier today - there was a stall selling Tradescantia with deep cerise pink flowers.....drool...... But sadly, I REALLY haven't got any more room... really...REALLY..... :-(

Poor you, Sid!.... perhaps researching the hanging gardens of Babylon would give you some extra-spatial ideas! lol....I know how that is...(terribly frustrating). : - } ...

if you have the yellow water iris, Sid...you will need to wrangle it into a small space and be prepared for a stampede! my neice has it ... it works well for her..she has plenty of room and a number of ponds and even has seed. lol... it's really quite hardy and very pretty in bloom!

Yes - it grows wild here in fact! I always think it's a bit odd tho when you come across a remote pond in the middle of a wood and there are yellow flags growing there......I mean, how did they ever get there??!! I'm sure a bit of human intervention must be involved....!! The seeds aren't winged are they?

No, sorry, Sarah. What I've seen of the seed they are middle brown, a flattened sphere...about the size of your little fingernail... quite large as seeds go, but very light...(they float) ... do you have water mammals(muskrats?) that might chew on the rhizomes or transport them. Some seeds will only germinate if they go thro a digestive tract first!

Can't think of any mammals that would transport them - unless deer eat them and then they'd have to poop in a pond LOL

From what I know of deer, they are not worried about where they poop...so I guess it's possible...
