Large evergreen plant with yellow flowers


By Woodie

Suffolk, United Kingdom Gb

Please can someone identify this plant! It has large strappy evergreen leaves and the flowers appear in October/November. They are yellow and there are about 4-5 flowers per stem. It is shallow rooted and grows in my gravel garden.




Looks like 'Iris foetidissima var. citrina.
Bit late to be flowering now but possible I suppose. Does it produce strings of orange berries?

Watch out - if you do leave the seedheads on - which are really the glory of these Irises - (colour in the winter), they seed themselves and you will find lots of babies around! Mine are the mauve version, but they are so useful for shady corners that I leave a few.

Thanks for your message. Sorry I haven't replied before but have been on holiday. No, it doesn't have orange berries - and I still don't know what it is!! Best wishes, Wendy
