Notes "Yellow Iris" is a short story by Agatha Christie, first published in 1937. It was later published in the collection The Regatta Mystery and Other Stories (1939), and also in Problem at Pollensa Bay and Other Stories (1991).

The BBC commissioned an hour long adaptation for The National Programme. The Yellow Iris was broadcast in the same year but met with mixed reviews as the action/dialogue was interspersed with the performances of the cabaret artistes who were supposedly on the bill at the restaurant. The story features the character Hercule Poirot.

Agatha Christie later used the central idea and setting of Yellow Iris in her 1945 full-length novel Sparkling Cyanide.
