Rich violet blooms that are set to impress.
Attractive foliage – stunning flowers.
Siberian Iris flowers open on strong, narrow stems which gives the illusion that they are almost floating over the foliage, like butterflies. These hardy Iris need practically no maintenance and will prosper in any well drained soil. With up to five blooms on a stem, Siberian Iris is a winner.
The grass like foliage grows to form neat clumps around the blooms.
The flowers of Siberian iris are prolific in late spring and a great addition to floral arrangements. Seed pods follow the flowering and can be left on for display into senescence.
The dry tolerant nature of these hardy rhizomes makes Siberian Iris an ideal choice for water wise gardeners. Plant in well drained soil in a full sun position, they need six hours sun a day to flower at their best.
Siberian Iris will tolerate poor soils but thrive in a humus rich environment. Plant so the crown is just below the soil surface. Water in well.
Siberian Iris are best left to naturalise. They will flower more prolifically as they establish. You will need to dig and divide every four or five years so they are ideal for low maintenance gardens.
The flowers open at the end of the Bearded Iris season and beyond and a little before Japanese Iris.
