We cherish Siberian Iris for its elegant flowers and tough constitution. Use Siberian Iris in perennial beds and cutting gardens. A top choice for cottage gardens, but also works fantastic in more formal settings. Its reed-like foliage looks great all season, and makes an ideal contrast to plants with round leaves. A top choice for around ponds and in naturalized settings. Very easy to grow, long-lived, pest and disease resistant, and requires little care. Deer and rabbit resistant. It can also be grown under Black Walnut trees since it is not effected by juglone. Siberian Iris feature medium to broad, pendent or semi-flaring falls, and medium to long, upright standards. Signals often consist of showy, intricate markings. Siberian Irises bloom before Japanese Irises but after Tall Bearded Irises.
Growing instructions: Plant Siberian Iris in full sun to partial shade locations. Add compost or other organic matter when planting. Although tolerant of drought once established, they will perform best with consistent moisture. Fertilize Siberian Iris in early spring when new growth starts, and again after blooming with an all purpose balanced fertilizer following manufacturer’s instructions.
