Powder-blue to soft periwinkle-hued flowers are blazed with a white halo infused with a yellow glow. Flaring falls are held outward like a ballet dancerís graceful arms. Iris, from the Greek word meaning rainbow, are available in all the beautiful colors of the rainbow. Iris sibirica Dear Delight forms large clumps of slender blade-like leaves with the intricate flowers held above the foliage on strong stems. Plant around water features for stunning early summer color. 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.
