  • Plant in wet mud in a stream edge/bog garden or with up to 20cm (8") of water over the top of the basket in a large, sunny pond. Suitable for shelf 0, shelf 1 or shelf 2

Remove dead flower heads before seeds are formed unless you would like it to colonize the banks of a large pond. Cut back Iris pseudacorus foliage in Autumn. Iris pseudacorus varieties are vigorous and will need dividing every 2-3 years and will benefit from a mulch of humus rich compost if planted in a stream edge or bog garden. A good plant for attracting insect pollinators - bees, hoverflies and butterflies in Summer.

Great customer service! I ordered plants for a wildlife pond and mentioned it was quite small in the order comments. The plants I ordered were the larger variety so I got a call from Waterside to ask about pond size and discuss. Excellent! Plants arrived (still went with the ones I originally requested) very quickly and packaged perfectly.
