Buy Iris chrysographes Siberian iris: Dramatic colouring that looks gorgeous beside water

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 to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Stunning, deep purple, velvety flowers with gold streaks on the falls appear from May to June above strappy, grey-green leaves. This clump-forming, beardless iris, related to the moisture-loving Siberian iris, makes an eyecatching feature in a 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.

Is it OK to cut back leaves on Iris Chrystographes some weeks after flowering has finished?

Raffles

Ideally the foliage should not be cut back until the autumn - at which point you can remove any dead or dying foliage.
