SIB – Siberian Irises
Absolutely easy and durable irises suitable for every garden. They grow from 50 to 130 cm, have very nice, small flowers and quickly create clumps with a large number of flowering stems. Their leaves are grassy - they remind of high ornamental grasses - with a year-round decorative effect. These irises prefer humid, humous soil, but grow well in every soil, in sunny- or semi-shaded positions. They are resistant to diseases and pests and fully frost-resistant. In a vase, they stay fresh for long. You can plant them individually or combined with other perennials; they also fit perfectly into natural gardens.
