Siberian Iris


The most obliging of our spring flowers -- Siberian irises bloom and bloom and spread and spread.

 

 Their cousins, the tall bearded iris that will open soon, are fancier -- ruffled and in many color iterations, they are wonderful accents in the garden. But there's something about these masses of purple blooms against the fresh green foliage that wins my heart.

I love these too - and the deer don't eat them! Yours are a lovely deep color.
