Iris General Information:

Iris Sibirica are dazzling flowers that provide a bold splash of color atop narrow stems and sword-like foliage. More delicately flowered than Bearded Iris, Siberians are very adaptable and easy to grow. Prized for their strong upright presentation. Sturdy flower stalks are adorned with intricately patterned flowers in rich colors. Equally at home in the flower border, or a moist (even bog) garden.

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.
