Thank you Siberia!

The third of the Irises that I received from a gardening friend last year have finally started to open, and I'm pretty sure they're Siberian Irises.


They're smaller than the Bearded Irises I've posted about before (here and here), the foliage is grassier, but they're no less beautiful.

Since Blogger went down for almost a full 24 hours I wasn't able to write much about them, but I guess maybe I really don't have to.












As with my other Irises, I'll need to find somewhere to plant these. They're too beautiful to limit to a pot... well, unless it's a nice pot.

(Please let me know if I ID'd these incorrectly, or if you know the species name. Thanks!)

those sure look like Siberian Irises! They are beautiful irises - like a tall version of Iris Cristata which are also great looking low ones that bloom now. Siberian Irises become a serious clump of iris - and are incredibly hard to divide they are so thick so keeping them a manageable sized clump will help.

There are so many cultivars so click on this website to see if you can find your variety color (if you can - they are so similar!)
