Iris sibirica 'Contrast in Styles'

Contrast in Styles Siberian Iris

Categories: Herbaceous Perennial

This showy selection of Siberian Iris is perfectly named for its incredible contrasting color patterns.  3-5” flowers have rich wine purple standards and falls and lighter blue-purple styles.  Semi-flaring falls display prominent white and yellow signals with purple veining.  The contrast is truly eye-catching. 


Siberian irises are haled for their elegant, delicate flowers and disease resistance. They perform admirably in the sunny to partially shady garden, but need plenty of water throughout the season to continue looking their best. In naturalized settings, they are particularly effective around water features.
