    Beautiful flowers! I see one growing in the wild here quite often but I don't know if it is native or introduced. About 5' tall with yellow flowers. You must have quite the raccoon problem!

    Iris pseudacorus is the only yellow Iris you are at all likely to see growing wild in North America. Invasive non-native that can cause problems in wetlands. Check out Ontario Invading Species Awareness Program website.

    Luckily, this is not a problem with the lovely Iris posted here.

    Looks like the same thing. I think its taller than that though and I only ever see it in small patches.
