Iris sibirica `Silver Edge' AGM

Sibirica means that it comes from Siberia. It is a rhizomatous perennial that grows to about 1m tall and as you can see its pretty, spring flowers look as though they have been outlined in silver pen.


Cultivation: It grows in any good garden soil that is moist but not waterlogged. A mulch of well-rotted manure in spring is a good idea; divide the rhizomes from mid-summer to autumn.
