Buy Iris chrysographes black-flowered Siberian iris: Stunning, almost black flowers. For a damp spot

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained, moderately fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Dramatic, indigo-violet, almost black flowers appear in May and June above strap-like grey-green leaves. This clump-forming, beardless iris, related to the moisture-loving Siberian iris, makes an eyecatching feature in a sunny, boggy area of the garden, or beside water.

  • Garden care: Plant in soil that has been improved with well-rotted manure or garden compost and do not allow to dry out, particularly as the plant is getting established. If planted in a container, it will need dividing and repotting every couple of years in spring.

  • Harmful if eaten

Notes on Iris chrysographes black-flowered

"Slender, delicate iris grown for its upright small black flowers, finely flecked in contrasting canary-yellow at its throat, must have moisture to multiply"

Hello there, I received my iris christographes 3 litre pot yesterday, many thanks. Can I leave it in this pot for a while, or do I need to put it in a bigger pot and what size, as in summer garden dry, so need to keep it well watered as you say. Thank you . Best wishes .


Hello there You can keep it in this pot for a few weeks, but it will need to be planted up into a larger pot, but don't let it dry out. I would plant into a 30-40cm diameter pot and then divide and repot every couple of years. Hope this helps.

Hi there, could you please tell me how long the flower of this plant should last, I have had 2 flowers on my iris and they have only lasted 48 hours. This is a new plant only purchased this year and I have never grown irises before so am completely ignorant I'm afraid. It was fed when I planted it and I give it a feed every couple of weeks, it is growing very well but I don't know if the flowers are lasting such a short time because it is a new plant. Thanking you in advance.


Hello, Each iris flower is short-lived, but as the plant gets older it will produce more so the display will go on for longer.
