Design Ideas: This rich purple Siberian Iris will adapt to practically all garden conditions and styles. Plant them as a traditional perennial in flower beds. 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. Even works well in the woodland garden or mixed into wild meadow stands. May also be used as a dramatic reed-like plant in antique ceramic pots and urns.

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.

History

The iris flower is the inspiration for the French national symbol, the fleur-de-lis.
