‘Butter and Sugar’ Siberian Iris
Iris siberica Creamy white standards with Jersey butter-yellow falls. Their 2' stems make especially good cutting, and their use in tall arrangements is just delicious.
When renowned Maine iris breeder Dr. Currier McEwen introduced ‘Butter and Sugar’ in 1970, it was the world’s first yellow Siberian iris, and is still the yellow standard.
26–28" tall. Summer blooms, Z3-9. 2-3 fan.
Good Deal for 2019!
Beardless flowers float above the foliage. Slim yet sturdy stems bear up to 5 blooms, good for cutting. Tall slender foliage in clumps looks great all summer grouped in borders or naturalized in colonies. Wonderfully hardy, low maintenance, easy to grow; tolerates clay or poor dry soil, but performs best in rich moist acid soil.
Plant 12–15" apart in full sun or partial shade, with rootstock just below soil level. Give them room to spread; divide tight clumps and clumps with open centers if flowering decreases.
