This tall Siberian iris produces dark red flowers in late spring on rigid stems which rise to 40" high above a clump of arching, narrow, grass-like, linear leaves. Clumps will grow together and snuff out weeds. After bloom, the vase-shaped foliage will retain its green color into the fall. Excellent cut flower, but lasts only 1-2 days.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, medium to wet soil in full sun to part shade. An adaptable plant which tolerates a wide range of soils. It is best grown in very moist, fertile, slightly acid soil, including boggy conditions, but will also tolerate a poor, dry soil because its thick roots penetrate the soil deeply.
