I had never heard of Siberian Iris, when many years ago a friend, whose family was one of the early farmer/settlers in the Robson Valley gave me a clump and told me to plant them. I was happy to add to the flowers we had, and they have thrived. They seem to like the moist environment that our property provides. I have several patches of them, some I planted along the shoreline of my pond, and others in an old flower garden.
Siberian Iris, with their long narrow stems are more lanky and taller than the regular iris, I was used to. The blooms of ones I have, have a striking pattern, whose striped brownish areas always remind me of tiger skin. My Siberian Iris seem especially happy with the weather we have gotten so far this year.
