Cold-Hardy Siberian Iris
Siberian Iris — a Holy History
Siberian iris were first collected in Siberia by monks over 500 years ago. A common sight in monastery gardens in the Middle Ages, these rugged flowers eventually became known across Europe for their beauty and resilience, and now they even grow wild in parts of North America. With blooms arriving a few weeks after tall bearded varieties, Siberian iris will extend your iris display into the summer.
Each Siberian Iris is like Two Plants in One!
With spectacular flowers and attractive, grass like foliage that forms in carefree clumps, Siberian iris are a landscaper's dream and a home gardener's delight. We've put together five of our favourite varieties for this new collection, which is guaranteed to provide long-lasting, low maintenance beauty year after year!
Where to Plant your

prefer moist soil, so they do well near a
pond, but don't let them get waterlogged
