Plant Features

Iris sibirica 'Sunfisher' is one of the earliest blooming Siberian Irises. Producing light yellow standards and deeper yellow falls form a beautiful sight from early to midsummer. They are known for their elegant, and delicate flowers and being disease resistance. Sunfisher 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).

Excellent companion plants for Siberian Iris include: Cardinal Flower, Joe-Pye Weed, Swamp Milkweed, Canna Lilies, and various ornamental grasses like Sedges.

Iris Plant Care Instructions: Irises are relatively low-maintenance plants; however, these actions will help keep them healthy and thriving. Remove spent flowers by cutting them back to the first set of healthy leaves. Any leaves that develop brown tips during the summer can be trimmed just below the browning area - this is a natural process for irises. Avoid mulching around the rhizomes to prevent rot. Regularly remove dead or dried leaves from the plant. In early fall, cut back all foliage to ground level. Divide iris plants every 3-5 years, typically about 4-6 weeks after flowering. Spring is the best time to apply a single application of balanced fertilizer.
