Buy Iris 'Tropic Night' Siberian iris ( syn. Iris sibirica Tropic Night ): Velvety, violet flowers with veined yellow throats

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 acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Velvety, violet flowers with veined yellow throats appear in May and June among bright green, slender, strappy leaves. Like all Siberian flag irises, this is a clump forming plant that needs space to spread out and prefers a moist, neutral to slightly acid soil in sun or partial shade. It looks best planted in bold drifts beside water and allowed to naturalise. It is particularly useful on difficult banks where it will help to prevent erosion and over time will form large clumps. It can also be planted in a pot as a marginal plant for a pond.

  • 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.

Produces masses of beautiful purple flowers, which are a magnet to bees, and look magnificent when planted in groups. Does suprisingly well in clay soil, which I did not expect. Probably my favourite Iris...A truly wonderful plant. Highly recommended.




Stunning and very healthy


This might be the start of an iris addiction, such a strong healthy plant with lots of beautiful flowers - I am yet to see how long they last but the plant is worth it's place on the garden for its foliage alone.




I have bought this item before


I've ordered this Iris before and it produces a beautiful display of colour, rich deep blue. I have heavy clay soil and I mulch it regularly.

Water garden

Who can resist the allure of water in the garden? The gentle gurgle of a running stream creates a sense of calm and tranquillity, while a simple pond makes a focal point with magnetic appeal. You can create lush and natural-looking planting to show off th
