I took a chance on this one because the nursery tag called for full sun – I’m glad I did! Iris sibirica forms a tall, dense clump of thin emerald green leaves reminiscent of cattail (but better looking). It’s flawless almost year round. The incredible flowers this ‘Caesar’s Brother’ variety puts out are a deep, intense violet color. I’ve gathered some seeds but have yet to try to and sprout them. I’d love to have a few more clumps of these throughout the yard.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
