Iris sibirica 'Colonel Mustard' has large, bi-colour, double blooms of mustard to yellow and violet-purple bars.
Iris sibirica 'Colonel Mustard' is an attention grabber with its showy flowers in unusual tones of rich mustard yellow, creamy yellow, and lavender with wide purple bars. Siberian irises have elegant, delicate flowers atop vertical columns of strap-like green foliage that look great all season long. They are tough, long-lived, and disease resistant preferring average to moist soils. Useful for bridging the gap between spring and summer flowering perennials and between tall bearded irises and Japanese irises providing a vibrant succession of colour combinations. May re-bloom later in the season. Attracts pollinators. Deer resistant.
