Yellow flag, a beardless iris, is native to Europe, northern Asia, the Middle East and northern Africa. It prefers moist locations, can even grow in standing water, and has naturalized throughout the eastern US.

Native to Europe and western Asia, this delicate springtime flower is a garden favorite throughout the world. Artist Anita Walsmit Sachs’ lyrical watercolor of many intertwining stems and flowers is not only beautiful, it imparts a great deal of information about the plant. Two different color forms are shown, and flowers are painted in early bud, full flower, and with petals dropped. The flower on the left appears to be on stage, with the rest of the flowers excitedly gathered together, many stems and leaves interwoven gracefully.
