Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
IRIS sibirica 'Blue Pennant'
Blue Pennant Siberian Iris, Siberian Iris
The blooms of Siberian iris ‘Blue Pennant’ are a study in many shades of dusky blue. The inner petals of its three-part flowers are light blue, the outer ones a deep violet-blue, forming a unique two-tone effect. Bright yellow spots accent the bases of the falls.
The parent species of Siberian iris is native from Central Europe through to Russia where it grows in a wide range of conditions from wet water's edge to well drained rocky hillsides. This versatility makes these tough perennials adaptable to a wide range of conditions. The linear, almost grass-like, green foliage of Siberian iris remains fresh and attractive throughout the growing season.
Siberian iris prefer sunny locations and fertile soil with average drainage. The cold-tolerant plants form dense, slowly spreading clumps which should be divided every three years or so. These vigorous perennials look especially impressive planted in masses or as upright accents at the edge of water gardens and pools.
