Iris sibirica enjoys a sunny position in well drained, neutral to slightly acid soil. These perennials prefer a free draining soil, so amend heavy clay soils with plenty of grit and well rotted manure prior to planting. When planting iris, ensure that the rhizome sits just at the soil surface as they are prone to rot if planted too deeply.
Overcrowded clumps of iris plants can be divided in late summer after flowering. Avoid mulching the rhizomes to prevent them from rotting over winter. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.

  1. Disappointing Rhizomes

    By Lily McDowall 03-06-2016

    The rhizomes for these 3 iris's were delivered in the spring. On arrival one of them was soft and covered in blue mould. The instructions said that they can sometimes have mould, but to continue to plant. I did as such, selecting the best spot for the mouldy one... the other two are well and truly up now, but not that one. It was a dud. I'm starting to loose faith in T&M, I've had quite a few disappointing plants come through now. Especially when you can buy an enormous, healthy looking Iris from a popular garden chain for £7 :/ Good for seeds, not much else.
