I was happy the other day to discover that my Siberian Iris were blooming again. A friend had given me the plant decades ago and I had planted it in a moist area by the pond. Over the years, as a nearby young spruce tree grew, there was less and less sunlight available to the iris. While the plant stayed alive, it stopped blooming.
A few years ago, in an attempt to get it to bloom again, I dug it up and moved it to an area beside the pond that received more sunlight. Last year I had hopes that it would show it’s appreciation for it’s new location by blooming, but it didn’t.
I guess it took longer than I expected for it to get readjusted to its new home, but this year the blooms have appeared.
Siberian Iris are taller and more slender than other iris I have seen. I really love it’s yellow, tiger-striped portion of the pedal.
