Iris sibirica 'Sweet Spot'

Siberian Iris

Plant Type:


Iris sibirica 'Sweet Spot' - Pale yellow falls with pretty violet shading. The violet is stronger and deeper at the base but softens as it extends outwards into the falls blushing into the pale yellow. Lovely. White standards vase out atop. Up to 6 flowers per stalk. In the spectrum of Iris sibirica this is a viborous midseason bloomer with the bonus of especially good foliage. Site in sun planted in rich, organic and moisture retaining loam. Established pot grown division.

Cultural requirements are simple but must be adhered to or plants are likely to languish, not perform and perhaps disappear from their special place in the garden. All of the cultivars we offer require a very nutritious loam rich in organic material preferably with a blend of composted animal manure and worm castings. When you think it's rich enough add more - just think of death by chocolate. Full sun exposure with your Siberian Iris in this deep moisture retaining soil will spell success. Please don't attempt circumvention with salt-based chemical fertilizers. Give them the rich, organic soil they require.

Genus Overview: Iris

Common Name: Iris

From small woodland species and tiny forms happy in a sunny trough to those that stretch to one's waist and higher irises are among the most beautiful and unique of herbaceous perennials. They come in an amazing array of colors with fans of foliage that provide textural contrast to other garden denizens long after the flowers have passed. None that we carry are especially common. All are beautiful in the full sun border with many adaptable to pond's edge. They want a home! Pot grown division unless otherwise indicated.
