Ruffled Velvet Siberian Iris
Absolutely Stunning in Late Spring
As you know, true blue flowers are very rare. This is one of the closest blues we've seen - a true, clear deep purple blue. What a beauty!
Siberian Iris are such an elegant flower. Lean and spare strappy leaves are paired with a knock out supermodel of a flower. This variety features velvety petals with a romantic ruffled edge and contrasting yellow highlights.
Be bold using these plants in your yard. This is the kind of plant that makes gardening fun.
Iris will naturalize into their space, although you'll always want more of them. Massing multiple plants together is the best way to use them, although we do have several ideas for you to consider in terms of placement. Use these as ideas as jumping off points for your personal style. Any way you use this beautiful plant, it's sophisticated grace will delight you!
This color draws your eye, so we suggest amplifying your existing focal points. An example of this would be to plant them at the base of a special sculpture in your landscape. Using these special flowers will only enhance the effect of the artwork.
Because the color resembles deep water, why not consider planting a drift, using multiple plants along a path to mimic the flow of water? Each spring, that corner of your landscape would bean exquisite experience for you and your guests.
They tolerate moist soil, so why not plant them in the splash zone of a bubbler fountain or the edge of a pond? Include special collected rocks and let them shine in this special setting.
Plant a long, thin border of these underneath spring flowering shrubs. You'll love the layered look of this fabulous edging plant. The color will work beautifully with purple lilacs.
Try as a “Thriller” in springtime container gardens. You’ll love using these in your cut flower arrangements. Order several today!
