Attractive, free-flowering blue with a white and yellow throat. Despite its name, this plant is a native of Europe, not Siberia. Delicate and exotic, the Siberian flag iris is a beautiful addition to any garden. With its purple petals and yellow and white markings, this iris is truly stunning. The harsh conditions of the Siberian tundra have made this plant tough and resilient, able to withstand cold temperatures and harsh weather. But don’t let its tough exterior fool you – the Siberian flag iris is a delicate and fragile flower that requires special care. If you’re looking for a plant that will add some serious wow factor to your garden, look no further than the Siberian flag iris.
Repotting or planting
9cm marginal plants require potting into a larger mesh basket. Place in a pond no deeper than 1/3 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 1ltr marginal plants do not require repotting, place in the pond no deeper than 1/2 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 3ltr and 5ltr plants do not require repotting, as they are larger more established plants they can be placed up to the maximum recommended depth. There is no need to remove the mesh basket.
After foliage has died back in Autumn cut back to just above the water surface. If trimming left until spring take care not to damage emerging shoots.
