American Iris Society 2011 Award of Merit Winner
Charming Billy, debonaire and handsome, struts multi-toned flowers in early summer. Red-violet to deep purple falls accented with bright yellow blazes and lighter red-violet standards are offset with light blue styles. A stunning color extravaganza! Iris sibirica Charming Billy is a strong grower with 3-4 blooms per stalk. Leading authorities on Siberian Irises, Marty Schafer and Jan Sacks hybridized this charmer. Siberian Iris are more delicately flowered than Bearded Iris. Medium-sized flowers bloom on many stalks. Equally at home in the border or a moist (even boggy) garden.

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.
