Iris hybrid (Cal-Sibe)

Cal-Sibe hybrid
Bulbs and bulblike plants, Perennials


A large and remarkably diverse group of 200 to 300 species, varying in flower color and form, cultural needs, and blooming periods (although the majority flower in spring or early summer). Leaves are swordlike or grasslike. Flowers (fragrant, in many kinds) are showy and complex in structure.

Iris hybrid (Cal-Sibe)

These hybrids between Sino-Siberian iris hybrids and Pacific Coast iris hybrids look most like the first group of hybrids, but with an expanded color range. These do best where the climate is moist and relatively mild. Give plants good, acid soil and regular moisture.
