New, Dusty lavender flowers sit above golden yellow petals. The golden yellow petals are lined with purple veining that matches the heart of the flower. ‘Purring Tiger’ is compact for Siberian Iris, standing about a foot and half tall. Expect this midseason bloomer to roar to life as it flowers in early summer.
Siberian irises are haled for their elegant, delicate flowers and disease resistance. They perform admirably in the sunny to partially shady garden, but need plenty of water throughout the season to continue looking their best. In naturalized settings, they are particularly effective around water features. They can also be grown under Black Walnut trees since they are not affected by juglone. Siberian Irises bloom before Japanese Irises but after Tall Bearded Irises. Zone 4
