Here's a stunning, uniquely hued Siberian iris that will attract attention wherever you use it, whether planted in a group in a garden, at the edge of a walking path or alongside a water feature. Blooming from mid to late spring, the 5" flowers feature violet-peach standards with coppery, orange-red falls that sway in the breeze and deep yellow signals veined in red. Butterflies and honeybees find these blooms irresistible, but deer and rabbits tend not to eat them. Because Paprikash reaches 20" tall, it's an excellent option for mid-border use. The showy flowers are wonderful for cutting, so be sure to grow a few extra to use in bouquets and arrangements.
