I really the like the fact that Siberian irises continue to look attractive after their blooms are spent. The stalks and seed pods provide garden interest all summer and into the fall. I wish the bearded irises looked as pretty after their blooms are spent. The downside to Siberians is that it takes so long before they bloom. My Siberian Iris 'Blueberry Fair' finally bloomed this spring, four years after I planted it. It has a longer season than my NoID Siberians.

So, just wondering. What are your favorite Siberian iris.

One of my favorite old ones is Shaker's Prayer. It is very tall and robust but hard to divide as it grows so thickly. I hacked some of it off last year and this spring and they are flowering beautifully, even the ones transplanted this year.

I like my

in my garden.

The most prolific and least fussy of my Sibs is definitely my grandfathers blue NoID

Here it is growing 'wild' out back.
Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice!
