Siberian iris "Band of Angels"

This variety was first bred in 1996 and won the love of gardeners because of its appearance. Up to 4 buds grow on one stem. Blue-violet flowers of this species bloom for a very long time, on fouls they have a delicate creamy outline and a signal with a golden center, which give the plant originality.

This variety loves well-drained soil and light-colored flower beds. Therefore, when planting the rhizome of this flower, it is necessary to choose the right place.

It should be noted that the iris should not be planted too deeply. Enough 5 cm. But the distance between the bushes should be up to 50 cm. Watering the plant is recommended once a week, depending on soil moisture and air temperature.

Iris "Blackberry Jubilee"

This legendary variety has received numerous quality awards. Bred in 1997 by American Marty Schaefer, it was recognized as the most resistant iris species to disease.

Huge corrugated flowers with wide petals have a reddish purple color and a pale yellow signal. This variety is late, but the plant blooms for up to 1.5 to 2 months. Iris takes root well on any soil, but loves light. It sits down to a depth of 3 cm, with a distance of up to 60 cm.

Siberian iris "Coronation Anthem"

Unlike the above varieties of Siberian iris, Coronation Anthem is prone to re-flowering. Bred by Robert Hollingworths in 1990, this variety is preferred by lovers of tall and massive flowers.

Siberian iris Coronation Anthem grows up to 80 cm, has up to 2 branches of 4 - 5 buds each. Blue flowers with a creamy yellow center, light blue styles with a red tint, bloom twice in one season.

For planting iris, neutral or slightly acidic soil is suitable, which should be dug up and weeds removed. If the root is a little dry, it must be dipped in water for several hours. Planting rhizomes is carried out to a depth of 5 cm. It is worth planting in spring or autumn, replanting - after 3 weeks after flowering.

Siberian iris variety "Crimson Cloisonne"

One of the latest and newest varieties of Siberian irises. It is planted mainly in autumn or early spring. It begins to bloom in June. This type of iris has large dark crimson flowers with purple veins and a white center. The aroma of this iris is very subtle and almost imperceptible.

In planting, this variety is very moody. In the dug hole, the iris should be planted so that its roots do not bend up. Having covered the hole with earth, the plant should be watered immediately. The plant loves cool soil and shade.

Iris "Dance and sing"

The variety of Siberian iris Dance and sing is distinguished by its aroma and huge flowers. A giant, yellow flower with the widest petals of a standard shape, fine white lines and green leaves, it looks beautiful in the garden among the colorful undersized plants. This variety needs bright lighting, but on hot days, a little shading is desirable. In the choice of soil, he is not whimsical. But, watering should be abundant.

When planting, the top of the stem is cut off, leaving 5 to 10 cm, and buried to a depth of 5 to 8 cm.

Charming "Dawn Waltz"

The tall iris variety Dawn Waltz resembles an orchid with its inflorescence. Delicate pink flowers with pearly white styles, bloom up to 2 months. The plant has dark green leaves and a sturdy stem.

Iris loves well-fertilized and well-drained soil, and abundant watering. Before planting the root, the soil is well filled with compost, which is enough for the plant to feed on the first half of summer. Then, it should be re-enriched with useful minerals.

King of Iris - "Double standards"

Double standard is the name of this late Siberian iris variety. Plant height - 60 - 70 cm. Flowers are dense - double, large, dark purple with a lavender tint. Yellow spots on the petals give the flower a touch of tenderness and charm.

The variety loves neutral soil, regular watering in the first year after planting and rare division of the rhizome. They plant the root not deeply, up to 5 cm. Fertilize the soil with compost.

Snow-white miracle "Esther C.D.M."

The huge blooming snow-white flower gained its popularity back in the 1980s. This variety has a very strong stem and huge green leaves. It begins to bloom at the end of June. Loves the sun and abundant watering. Fertilize the soil before planting. It is recommended to divide the rhizome once every 3 years, since with an annual division, the plant will not bloom.

The blue of the sky in the "Four winds" variety

Excellent growth and abundant flowering are characteristic of this variety. The blue flowers, reminiscent of a wild orchid, have an oval shape, light veins and a greenish signal. I recommend planting it in late autumn to a depth of 10 cm. At the same time, it is recommended to cut the stem, leaving 15 cm of leaves. If the planting is carried out with a young rhizome, a little fertilizer is placed in the hole, covered with earth, and only then the plant is planted. Siberian iris loves bright sunlight and good watering.

Iris "His"

Iris Ego is a classic iris with delicate blue flowers, a thin stem and light green leaves. Gardeners prefer this species because of the dense, well-formed shrubs that look neat and flower all summer.

"His" has a powerful root system, so it loves well-fertilized soil, light and moisture. A good landing site will be the edge of the reservoir, or a point above the water level.

Unique variety "Kaboom"

One of the most popular and at the same time capricious varieties of Siberian iris is Kabum. The plant grows up to 75 cm, has an amazing multi-petal double flower of blue - purple color with a raspberry tint. Petals with white spots blend smoothly into the yellow center. Up to two buds grow on one peduncle annually.

Unlike other varieties, iris does not fade for a long time when cut and does not fade in the sun.

Kaboom is very fond of fertilizing and watering. In the spring, you should apply a complex mineral fertilizer with a full set of trace elements. Before flowering, you need to feed it with manure infusion. Also, do not forget to remove the seed pods in time, so that they do not spill out on the ground and give self-seeding, which will interfere with the growth of the main bush.

Multicolor iris "Oriental carpet"

The original and multi-colored iris is the brainchild of Austrian gardeners, which amazes with its shape, colors and colors. The stem grows up to 50 cm, up to 3 buds are formed on it, which bloom within a month.

The soil, which is chosen for planting iris, must certainly be drained, so that excess moisture does not lead to the death of the bush. You should not plant this iris near trees, as the shade and strong root system of the neighbors will interfere with the growth of the flower.

Beauty "Rigamarole"

Rigamarole is a late variety of Siberian iris, which grows up to 70 cm in height, has a large double flower with pink petals, the edges of which are much lighter from the middle. Rigamole grows very slowly and blooms only in the second year after planting. Fertilizers from compost, minerals, timely watering, sod soil - the conditions under which the plant will grow well.

Sort of Siberian iris "Roaring Jelly"

Iris Roaring Jelly is an ideal variety for planting in flower beds and nurseries: it grows very quickly, blooms several times per season. Rhizomes are planted in early spring. It is moistened and buried to a depth of 5 cm. They feed twice during the summer.

Lilac - the crimson flowers of this variety are very large. They have dark veins, light border. They do not fade in the sun, stand up to 4 days in the cut.
