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.

  • Harmful if eaten

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


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