Buy Iris 'Silver Edge' Siberian iris ( syn Iris sibirica Silver Edge ): Blue flowers edged with white

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, neutral to slightly acidic soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Dusky, mid-blue petals, each with a distinctive silver edge form lightly ruffled flowers in May and June above slender, blue-green, strap-shaped leaves. This beautiful blue, Siberian iris provides vertical interest in a sunny garden border or waterside planting. More vigorous than other varieties it's particularly valuable for holding together deteriorating riverbanks.

  • 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
