Iris sibirica 'Silver Edge'

Silver Edge Siberian Iris

Categories: Herbaceous Perennial

The lightly ruffled, silver-edged petals combine with slightly blue-tinted foliage in a delightful vertical accent. More vigorous than many and best at the water's edge or in moist, sunny borders.


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.
