This iris enjoys growing in moist soils, even in standing water! The bright yellow signal on Yarai Pseudata's yellow-gold falls is accented by its strong purple veining. An excellent border or specimen plant it also performs well in mass plantings and, of course, water gardens. Attracts hummingbirds and pollinators, plus it is deer and rabbit resistant.
