Yet Another Invasive Species
Yellow flag-iris is an aquatic plant that can grow in both saltwater and freshwater. Introduced to North America a century ago as a showy garden ornamental, the plant has spread widely into natural areas by both seed and underground stems.

The iris forms very dense clusters and crowds out the natural variety of estuary plants declining the biodiversity. This results in a less productive estuary and inhibits its ability to support a wide range of wildlife species.

This year the Campbell River estuary iris removal effort will include the use of a small excavator to dig up the densest infestation areas. Patches of the plant will be dug out and soil as well as native plants will be recovered by ground crews. The iris will be loaded into a trailer and disposed of.
