Iris sibirica ‘Rikugi-sakura’


Siberian Iris

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.289.340


The Siberian Iris are an easy, trouble-free group, forming clumps of grassy foliage with a late spring display of butterfly-like flowers. Plants are sturdy and upright, and seldom troubled by Iris borer. This unusual selection has soft lavender-pink petals arranged flat like spokes of a wheel with bases of an unusual contrasting copper tone. Excellent at the waterside, or in a moist border. Also suitable for using in tubs and mixed containers. Siberian Iris are tolerant of wet sites, and will even grow in the shallow water at the edge of a pond or stream. Easily divided in early fall, every 3 to 4 years. Great for cutting. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
