Another foreign (but beautiful) invader!

This is a pretty one but the wild yellow iris, (Iris pseudacorus) is not a native plant. I discovered this one by the peninsula approaching the weir. It is an aquatic plant but can survive in fairly dry conditions. Often used as a decorative plant in gardens, this grouping may have arrived here from a garden up the river.
