Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
IRIS sibirica 'Snow Queen'
Siberian Iris, Snow Queen Siberian Iris
Siberian iris ‘Snow Queen’ gleams in the garden with its delicate flowers of clean white, touched with subtle blazes of pale yellow at the base of the falls.
The parent species of Siberian iris are native from Central Europe through to Russia where they grow 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.
