Hardy to Zone 2
Bloom Time - Late April, early summer
Color - Blue, purple, yellow, white, bi-colors
Foliage - Long, thin, sword shaped blades
Size - 1-4 ft.
Exposure - Sun to part shade
Culture - Lovely miniature iris that is easy to grow. These iris can tolerate a wetter soil than bearded iris. Large clumps form rather quickly and need to be divided in order to bloom well. These iris make excellent fillers in perennial borders.
I love Siberian Iris. They are excellent plants for borders and water features. The flowers last for a long period and do well in cut flower arrangements. They will spread fast and form good-sized clumps. Frequent division is necessary to keep them blooming well. Once the flowers have faded, the foliage provides nice contrast to companion plants.
