DESCRIPTION:
Pale-yellow iris is widely distributed across most of the United States and Canada. It occurs in almost every state, with the exceptions of North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Wyoming, Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Arizona. It is largely believed that most classes of cattle will avoid this plant. It should be understood that in situations where livestock are underfed, they may partake of any poisonous plant to some degree. In certain situations, it was observed that foliage was eaten down to the rhizomes by domestic cattle in autumn when other vegetation was unavailable. Domestic sheep have been observed browsing early-season leaves. In Britain, gastroenteritis occurred after livestock ate hay containing pale-yellow iris, and acute diarrhea occurred in domestic cattle after rhizome consumption. It was also noted that Pale-yellow iris has been used as a rehabilitation plant to reduce bacterial loads.
