Award-winning Siberian Iris 'Silver Edge' (Iris Sibirica) is widely popular among gardeners for its stunning, rich blue, ruffled flowers with their distinctive silver edge and their center veined white-yellow that can be admired from late spring to early summer. Each flower stalk produces many dainty blossoms. After blooming, the grass-like foliage, consisting of sturdy clumps of upright green, narrow and fairly rigid, blade-shaped leaves, is also one of its most attractive garden features.
