Plant Features

Iris sibirica 'White Swirl' plants are considered the gold standard in white irises. This tall, elegant iris arrives in ivory shades with just a hint of yellow on the throat, blooming above slender green foliage. Perfect for framing a water feature. Deer tend to overlook irises.

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.
