Iris sibirica, ‘Sparkling Rose’

Sparkling Rose’ is a late spring to early summer bloomer, with lovely rosy-pink blossoms with blue overtones and yellow base to each fall. The flowers are highlighted with prominent veining. A striking and unusual iris for the border or moist spot. Siberian Irises are floriferous, colorful and versatile, enjoying sun or shade and a range of drained soils.

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. More delicately flowered than Bearded Iris, the Siberian have medium-sized flowers on 3 1/2 foot stalks. Equally at home in the dry border, or a moist or bog garden. Very reliable, they flower in June, and are trouble free. Deer resistant.

Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Easily grown in average, medium wet to wet soil in full sun to part shade. An adaptable plant which tolerates a wide range of soils. It is best grown in very moist, fertile, slightly acid soil, including boggy conditions, but will also tolerate a poor, dry soil because its thick roots penetrate the soil deeply.
