This tall Siberian iris produces beautiful, deep velvety purple flowers in late spring on rigid stems, which rise to 42″ high above a clump of arching, narrow, grass-like, linear leaves. Clumps will grow together and snuff out weeds. After blooms are gone, the vase-shaped foliage will retain its slightly bluish-green color into the fall. Iris “Caesar’s Brother” is one of the most easily grown Iris. Excellent cut flower, but lasts only 1-2 days. This plant will make very large clumps within a few years that carry masses of flowers.
Iris sibirica: Exceptional hardiness, easy culture, long life and durable, handsome foliage rank this perennial among the favorites. Performs well near streams, bogs or in open meadows, and blooms between spring flowering and summer flowering perennials.
