Does anyone know....

... what this plant is?  It's one that's turned up in my friend's garden and she likes it and so is cultivating it.  Only none of us has any idea what it is and I was hoping someone might be able to tell me?  


Interestingly enough the purple one in the foreground has turned up in our flower border this year and we have no idea where it came from or what it is. But half the staalks on ours have started growing in clockwise spirals and they do look interesting.

Also, the yellow one in the background has also turned up in our garden from who knows where and is growing right next to the other one.  

I've got the yellow one in my garden and I'm told it's yellow flag - a type of iris?

The one in the pot is a toadflax and the one in the background id yellow flag iris. Love Lizzie

Thanks Lizzie - I think you've got it!  

We've got loads of toadflax
