    Salt in bog Filter

    We are in the process putting some yellow flag iris in our bog filter and was wondering are these salt tolerant?

    Dont have actual experience with the plant ,but thaey are suposed to absorb heavy metals from water ,right .It looks like they are salt tolerant ,read some research that mentions that the seeds germinate even after being immersed in salt water for 21 days ... Here are some links for your ref. below which mentions that they are salt tolerant .....

    The yellow iris is very commonly grown in this area. Salt treatments are taken in stride. I don't think it would do well in water with a permanent high salt content.
