Siberian Iris

With it’s thinner leaves, limited colour range and smaller flowers it is easy to tell the Siberian Iris from it’s family member the Bearded Iris. Native to Europe and Central Asia these irises can be planted in the fall for next Spring’s bloom and can also be divided at that time every 3-5 years. They make great colourful addition to a shady location and are beautiful as cut flowers.

It’s is careful to note the all parts of this plant are poisonous.
