Quick Overview:

This award-winning Siberian Iris sports a magnificent mix of hues that delivers a unique gradating look to the scene. Upright standards of cream to the palest pink shade are trimmed in rich yellow-gold, showing darkest at the hafts. Pale apricot arms become darker at the midribs, setting up for spectacular blue-purple falls. The overall look is marvelous—the fragrant, 4″ flowers keep blooming from late spring to early summer in borders, beds and near water features

Description

Easily grown in average, medium to wet soil in full sun to part shade. An adaptable plant which tolerates a wide range of soils. It is best grown in very moist, fertile, slightly acid soil, including boggy conditions, but will also tolerate a poor, dry soil because its thick roots penetrate the soil deeply.
