This is an easy-to-grow plant that produces beautiful flowers. It is a good choice for moist boggy areas of water gardens including standing water. It is also effective in moist meadows, along ponds or in other high moisture areas of the landscape. Plants will perform well in borders as long as soil moisture requirements can be met. Yellow flag should not be planted along streams or ponds or lakes where it can spread into natural waterways and wetland areas may occur. Seed pods are valued for dried flower arrangements.
