Introducing the Siberian Iris, 'Purring Tiger': an enchanting blend of elegance and fierceness. At first glance, its dusty lavender blooms demand attention, poised gracefully atop radiant golden-yellow petals. But it's the intricate purple veining on these petals, mirroring the heart of the flower, that truly mesmerizes. Just like the whispered growl of a tiger, this compact beauty, standing at a modest 18-24 inches, delivers a roaring display of color every early summer. Perfect for those who seek a garden centerpiece that's both delicate and daring, the 'Purring Tiger' is more than a flower, it's a spectacle. Purring Tiger ships as a bare root. We like growing from bare roots because they establish quickly, become twice the size of a potted plant in the first season, and eliminate the need for plastic pots (a win for the environment).

>Purring Tiger Iris Plant Care Instructions: Plants are relatively care; however, these actions will keep it healthy and growing. Only water if there has been no rain for 3 weeks. Spent flowers should be cut back all the way down to the first set of attractive leaves. Any leaves that develop brown tips during the summer can be cut off just below the browning area. This is a natural process with iris. Do not mulch. Keep dried leaves cleaned out of the plant. All foliage should be cut back to the ground in early fall. Plants should be divided every 3-5 years. This should be done 4 weeks after flowering. Spring is a good time apply one application of fertilizer.
