Ornamental Value

Caesar’s Brother Siberian Iris is a common spring garden plant that adds bright color to the garden in the early months of the growing season. Flowering in May, the deep purple flowers dance above the blue-green strappy foliage that fans out in a vase shape. After flowering the flowers fade into seed pods that can be removed or left for added garden texture. Siberian Iris is adaptable to a wide range of soils from the occasionally wet to average well-drained garden soils. However, it is important to avoid areas that remain too wet or too dry for long periods of time.  Even after flowering the grass like foliage adds texture and contrast in the perennial garden bed.

 

Landscape Uses

Perennial borders, along slopes, wet areas of the garden, along streamlines, in massings or as a specimen plant.
