Additional Information About Caesars Brother Siberian Iris

Iris Sibirica 'Caesars Brother ' is a moderate growing aquatic plant and perennial plant that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 4A through 9B. It matures to an average height of 3 feet to 4 feet and an average width of 2 feet to 3 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun, morning sun with afternoon shade or morning shade with afternoon sun and grows best when planted in sand, loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained, moderately drained, moderately wet or consistently wet. In the spring Caesar's Brother Iris produces purple and dark purple flowers. The foliage is medium green in color. It attracts butterflies and visual attention and is resistant to deer, insects, diseases, mildew and heat.

Caesar's Brother Iris can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders, as a border or edger, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, in landscape beds or islands, for erosion control or in small groupings and also in theme gardens, cottage gardens, butterfly gardens or perennial gardens.


More About Caesars Brother Iris...

Caesar's Brother is an old, award-winning variety of Siberian iris that remains in great demand because few others can rival its deep coloring and exceptional vigor. The flowers are a very rich deep violet that appears almost black and are born above the foliage on tall, sturdy stalks. It's strap-like, green foliage forms nice, dense, vertical clumps in the garden and is breathtaking when in full bloom. After the bloom period, which is usually in mid- to late-spring, the erect foliage remains very attractive throughout the season.

The thick roots of Caesars Brother Iris drive down deeply, which makes them very drought resistant (though they also thrive in damp soil) and are great plants for holding soil on steep embankments in place. Each clump becomes large (3 feet or more wide). The root system is so dense that weeds cannot grow between the plants in the clump.

Caesars Brother Iris are exceptionally easy to grow, except for in the Desert Southwest. Plant them in moist to dry locations in the garden and provide full to partial sun.

These Iris work well in the garden as single clumps or planted in mass. They work equally as well in containers where they provide a nice vertical accent for use as a centerpiece or background to other lower-growing plants.
