The Ruffled Velvet Siberian Iris has beautiful blooms, but take a closer look, and these flowers are even more striking. Upright and drooping petals are the hallmark of an Iris, and this cultivar features petals in a deep plum hue. What really sets these blooms apart are the black and gold accents near the center of each flower. The Iris sibirica has narrow, sword-shaped leaves that emerge from the base of the plant. Enjoy the flowers from June through July, and the green foliage stays in place for the rest of the season after the blooms fade.

Grow this plant in beds borders, or create a dazzling mass planting. Butterflies are attracted to the blooms, so feature this beauty in a butterfly garden. The Siberian Iris is a clump-forming plant that is relatively low maintenance and grows as a perennial in USDA zones 4 through 8. The blooms and greenery are deer-resistant for added convenience.

Ruffled Velvet Siberian Iris Care

Plant the Ruffled Velvet Siberian Iris in full sun to partial shade. This plant needs 4 to 6 hours of sunlight each day. Soil should be neutral to slightly acidic and moist but allow for good drainage. Water this Iris weekly or when the top several inches of soil feels dry. This plant is drought-tolerant, but keeping up with watering will ensure the plant looks its best. 

Fertilize using a balanced plant food in the spring before the flowers bloom. Deadhead the Ruffled Velvet Siberian Iris to maintain a tidy appearance. Propagate the plant through division in the midsummer or early fall.

Ruffled Velvet Siberian Iris Spacing

This Siberian Iris is an upright, clump-forming plant that will grow 24 to 30 inches tall and wide. Space plants as close as 22 to 28 inches to create a full and dense planting.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
