Iris
Blue Siberian Iris
  • Iris gernanica - German or Bearded
  • Iris sibirica - Siberian
  • Iris ensata - Japanese
  • Iris pseudacorus - Yellow Flag
  • Iris versicolor - Blue Flag

All Iris are very hardy and will multiply rapidly in the growing conditions each of the varieties prefer. They all want plenty of sun but the different types vary in moisture requirements. Bearded and Siberian Iris are generally suitable for most gardens. "Flag" and Japanese Iris demand plenty of moisture and resent dry conditions
