IRIS sibirica 'Dear Delight'
Dear Delight Siberian Iris, Siberian Iris
Siberian irises are hybrids or selections of Iris sibirica, a tall, rhizomatous, beardless iris native from central Europe to Turkey and Russia. The cultivar 'Dear Delight' bears rounded, ruffled, baby-blue flowers in late spring on sturdy compact stems. The clumps of grass-like green foliage are also attractive.
Siberian irises do best in sunny locations and moist, fertile, well-drained soil. As their name suggests, they are very cold-hardy. Divide the dense clumps every three years or so. Enjoy this vigorous perennial in any large, sunny flower bed or planted en masse. The flowers can be cut but have a short vase life.
