In the Middle Ages, Irises were highly valued for their medicinal benefits and perfumery; these fine "Orrisroots" were said to impart a rich, sweet, violet-like fragrance that relieved innumerable ills. Even today, these garden favorites are prized for their many-colored displays and scents. Different varieties produce a range from grape juice to celery, orange bloom to lily-of-the-valley, and gardenia to anise.
Iris bloom in almost every color under the sun. Their flowers are shapely and elegant, their foliage long and narrow.
Siberian Irises are dazzling flowers that provide a bold splash of color atop narrow stems and sword-like foliage. More delicately flowered than Bearded Iris, Siberians are very adaptable and easy to grow. Prized for their strong upright presentation. Sturdy flower stalks are adorned with intricately patterned flowers in rich colors. Equally at home in the flower border, or a moist (even bog) garden.
