Siberian Iris 2017

Elegant Siberian Iris will add a long season of beauty to your garden. After flowering in late May and June, their sword-like foliage remains attractive throughout the growing season. Siberian Iris are tolerant of an extreme range of cultural conditions. Established plants are quite drought tolerant, however they can thrive in damp and boggy conditions. Loam soils, enriched with organic matter and mulched, are ideal. Siberian Iris perform well in sun and light shade.

 

Siberian Iris can be planted in early spring or fall. However, we recommend spring shipments only, to our customers in the northern tier of states. Since our New England climate does not allow us to dig much earlier than mid-April, we recommend fall planting for most warmer climates. Northern gardeners can also plant in the fall. We will ship plants to you in early September so that they will have two to three months to become fully established before winter.

 

We dig good-sized divisions (triple fan or larger).
