yellow Iris

I assume that this species was naturalised from cultivation. I could not figure out the species. The leaves are not ensiform, and according FLora Europae, the only yellow flowering Iris without sword-shaped leaves is IRis Juncea, but the description says that the leaves are up to 3mm wide, and I thinkt the specimens had wider leaves. They are flat but strongly recurved forming a pseudo-cylindical shape.


On the net, the only yellow Iris that comes up is Iris pseudacorus (which is not this one)
