Plant Type: Perennials
Warm lavender-pink self, fine white-edged falls, and a crimson blaze. Blooms in early summer. Siberian irises are haled for their elegant, delicate flowers and disease resistance.
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Siberian Irises are among the easiest and most trouble-free species to grow in their genus. They prefer full sun, though they will tolerate part shade especially in warmer zones. Plant in rich, moist soil that is moderately acidic (5.2-6.4). Deadheading this variety will not prolong its bloom. It is best to leave these irises untouched until there is a note-able lessening of blooms. At that time, they may be divided, preferably in the fall but also in the spring. New clumps may take two or three years to become firmly established, at which time they will begin to bloom profusely.
