Chilled Wine Siberian Iris
Iris sibirica 'Chilled Wine'
Water regularly - weekly, or more often in extreme heat or containers.
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate growing to 2 ft. tall, 12 to 18 in. wide.|
|Design Ideas||A vivid blue iris that is a natural for planting around fountains and water gardens where leaves suggest reeds at the shoreline. Use patches of them in dry stream beds to simulate the presence of water. Plants look great around landscape boulders or in antique clay pots for dramatic forms and textures. It is also very well suited to traditional perennial borders where short stature and tall flower spikes add a splash of color. Dense growth and size makes a fine plant for single specimen or in masses to intensify color. A natural for cooler cottage gardens and Asian inspired settings.|
