Iris sibirica 'Blue Bird'
Blue birds in the garden
It looks like a blue bird! The Siberian iris (Iris siberica) surprises us every year with its bright blue flowers. The 'Blue Bird' is an attractive plant that really grabs your attention in the garden. Siberian irises can also be planted in flowerpots. You will receive the iris bare-rooted in environmentally friendly sugar cane sacking. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to grow faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. These are winter-hardy perennials, so they return every year. The flowers bloom in the spring.
We make sure to plant it in a sunny spot. The Siberian iris loves well-drained, fairly dry soil.

Planting+

Siberian Iris flowers well in a warm sunny area or semi shade in moist soil.

These Siberian Iris grow best in the garden. The plant has thick rhizomes which should be planted as soon as possible upon receipt. Prepare the ground and thoroughly loosen the soil. Improve heavy garden soil by mixing in some sharp sand. Make a mound in the planting hole and lay the thick roots of the iris along both sides of the mound about 1 cm below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly down. Water immediately after planting. The spacing of the rhizomes should be roughly 25-30 cm.

Care+

Siberian irises are hardy perennials. The soil can normally be moist to slightly dry rather than too wet. Cut off faded flower stems completely and remove any unpleasant-looking leaves. The sword-shaped, greyish green leaves die back towards the end of summer, but new leaves appear once again in autumn. In winter, cover the plants with a layer of leaf litter or conifer branches. Cut off all the leaves in spring, give it a good feed and you will soon see new shoots appear.

Siberian irises should be rejuvenated

For profuse flowering, we recommend rejuvenating your Siberian irises after 4, 5 or 6 years. Dig up the rhizomes in August. Cut off the younger parts using a sharp knife while making sure that each part has a growing shoot Replant these young pieces and the following year the beautiful flowers appear again.

Siberian irises come in many wonderful varieties.
