I do have yellow flag iris. I'm trying to get them to grow in dry sand these days. They are very seedy, eventually I'll plant the right seeds that will thrive in desert conditions.
I dug my pond on a "hippy community", & the property owner got greedy, using the letter of the law to rob us.... SO, no more pics of my spring fed pond.
When I can, I'll create a new pond with a liner fed by rainwater from the roof.
Nice iris page, by the way.
Your story sounds all to familiar. I've saw it happen too many times in the past.
planting "aquatic" plants in dry soil. But the yellow flag does tolerate some dryness. I've seen them grow in clay that turned to brick in the middle of summer. Of course they didn't look all that good but they are survivers. And you're right they do produce way too much seed. I've got to pull new plants out or they'll take over the whole area.

In the spring it is a very good idea to do a pond clean out, removing leaves and old sedimentation that formed over the winter months. Do not stir the sedimentation that has settled at the bottom of the pond, this matter contains bad bacteria and other toxins that are toxic to Koi and Goldfish.

Water lilies are the most exquisite and colourful plants in the water garden and can give months of pleasure during the summer. It is also important not to forget that they play an important part in a pond ecosystem by shading the pond surface during the height of the summer. Other deepwater plants will also add interest and colour to some of the deep pond areas. Water Hawthorn, which flowers in the spring and autumn, makes a perfect partner for lilies giving you months of foliage cover and a beautiful display.
