Yellow Flag Iris

Nice but Undesirable

A gorgeous flower just appearing in a constraining planter on the edge of the garden pond. This is a good place for them to be but they are not natives on this continent and if they get out into the wild they form dense mats on the edges of waterways that crowd all the other riverside/lakeside plants that would otherwise be flourishing there.

Native Anemone

Quite a spreading clump of these lovely late spring/early summer shade-tolerant anemones hiding in a corner of the garden

Errant Violas

Tough little things

Some years ago we had a pot of tiny violas (we allow ourselves the occasional non-native plant in the garden) which set seed and ever since we have enjoyed the offspring emerging from the cracks between stones on the patio.
