DescriptionCold-Hardy Siberian Iris with Handsome Foliage!
Each Siberian Iris is like Two Plants in One!
With spectacular flowers and attractive, grasslike foliage that forms in carefree clumps, Siberian iris are a landscaper's dream and a home gardener's delight. We've put together five of our favourite varieties for this new collection, which is guaranteed to provide long-lasting, low maintenance beauty year after year!
Where to Plant your Beardless Beauties
Siberian iris are more cold-hardy than their tall bearded cousins and they can tolerate more shade. In fact, in Southern U.S. zones, protection from strong afternoon sun can be a benefit for your blooms. For cooler regions, however, full sun is still best. Siberian iris prefer moist soil, so they do well near a pond, but don't let them get waterlogged year round. Their full-bloom beauty after the first year is well worth your wait.
Siberian Iris—a Holy History
Legend has it that Siberian iris were first collected in Siberia by monks over 500 years ago. A common sight in monastery gardens in the Middle Ages, these rugged flowers eventually became known across Europe for their beauty and resilience, and now they even grow wild in parts of North America. With blooms arriving a few weeks after tall bearded varieties, Siberian iris will extend your iris display into the summer.
Common Features of these Uncommon Iris:
• Attractive foliage that resembles ornamental grass.
• Shade tolerance—although they prefer full sun.
• Preference for moist soil or "wet feet".
• Late-season seed pods that look great in dried arrangements
