Native rhizomatous plant with an upright elegant habit, forming dense clumps of linear leaves.
Flowers abundantly in May, producing distinctive blue-violet flowers with yellow and white markings.
The genus name “Iris” comes from the Greek word for rainbow, while the adjective “Siberian” refers to the plant’s provenance.
The dried rhizomes of the Siberian iris have anthelmintic (i.e. they act against parasitic worms), expectorant and diuretic properties.
