Yellow Iris
Iris humilis is a dwarf yellow iris from the steppes of Russia and into Mongolia. It began blooming June 11 (2001). There is a small patch of it that puts out a mass of flowers on short stems that last for about a day. Two or three days later it repeats this show. Some pink Forget-Me-Nots wander into the Irises. Trollius and Chiming Bells (Mertensia) in the background.
