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. 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.
