IRIS sibirica 'Silver Edge'
Siberian Iris, Silver Edge Siberian Iris
The large flowers of Siberian iris 'Silver Edge’ are nothing short of fabulous. Resembling the fleur de lis from an old French masterwork, the petals are velvety, deep blue edged delicately with exceptionally narrow, bright white margins. The intense blossoms of this robust iris stand out in a crowd, and are best appreciated at close range.
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. Siberian iris produce spectacular flowers in late spring to early summer in varying shades and combinations of blue, white, purple and yellow. 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.
