Somewhere down the line, someone gave me a Siberian Iris to plant. I was unfamiliar with the plant which is taller and more slender than the usual Iris than I was used to. They like moisture so I planted it on the shore of the pond, where they come up every year. I am especially attracted to the yellowish, tiger-striped area at the base of the petals, which accents the violet and white color of the rest of the bloom.
