Design Ideas This potent Siberian Iris will adapt to practically all garden conditions and styles. Use to simulate water in dry streambeds or around landscape boulders. Try as an equivalent to water Iris in damp spots around pools, ponds and water gardens. Although it works well in the woodland garden, where there is enough sun to accentuate its color, it's best in full sun and mixed into wild meadow stands. An exceptional reed-like plant for emerald-green antique ceramic pots and urns.
Flower Color Purple
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Coneflower (Echinacea); Turtlehead (Chelone); Daylily (Hemerocallis); Bee Balm (Monarda); Spiderwort (Tradescantia)
CARE
Care Easy and adaptable; thrives in enriched, neutral to slightly acidic, well-drained soils. Water regularly until well-established. Once established, water regularly from spring through bloom period; reduce frequency after bloom period. Remove faded foliage as new leaves emerge. Divide every 4 to 5 years in fall.
