Deep midnight-purple (almost black), velvety blossoms. Like a streak of lightning on a dark sky, each petal flashes a paper-thin ribbon of yellow. More delicately flowered than Bearded Iris, the chic flowers sway on narrow stems amidst sword-like foliage.

In the wild, Iris chrysographes grows in meadows, near streams and on forested hillsides. The Iris Black Form is a stunning addition to any bouquet.

Iris General Information

Iris Sibirica are dazzling flowers that provide a bold splash of color atop narrow stems and sword-like foliage. Prized for their strong upright presentation. Sturdy flower stalks are adorned with intricately patterned flowers in rich colors. Dense root systems prevent weeds as plants grow together in large clumps. Great on banks. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Iris Plant Care

Low care plant - best to leave undisturbed. If transplanted or divided, they may take a couple of seasons to bloom again. Leave a few seed pods on for late season interest. Some self seeding may occur. Foliage develops a golden autumn color which holds into early winter. Cut down old foliage in spring.
