Siberian Iris 2024


Shipping in Early May, September and Early October

(Our Spring Iris Shipping Season for 2024 has now ended. We will dig Iris for shipping or pickup in September and early October.)

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. Since our New England climate does not allow us to dig much earlier than mid-April, we recommend fall planting for most warmer climates. 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 ship to Northern gardeners in spring and fall.


Siberian Iris are dug for shipping or pick up only in May, September and October only. Our 2024 Spring Shipping Season has now ended.



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