Siberian flag irises prefer a moist or even boggy soil so are excellent near water (but not in it!).  They can be grown in drier conditions if watered well until established.  Iris sibirica ‘Silver Edge’ has beautifully ruffled flowers in a mid-blue with a delicate silver edge to the falls.  This is an old variety which looks stunning in flower.  It grows best in a neutral to acid soils, disliking lime.  AGM.  Hardiness rating H7. Pot size 1.5 litre.

Care & Maintenance.

Cut back all foliage to the ground in spring.  Plant all iris shallowly with the rhizomes on or just below the surface.  Split every four or five years to maintain vigour.  Propagate by division or seed. *CAUTION harmful if eaten
