Q. Siberian Iris Overwintering

I live in Alberta, approx Zone 3 growing conditions, and wondered if Siberian iris plants should be trimmed back for overwintering. I know the other types of iris are often trimmed back to approx 3 inch in height, but wondered if same applied to Siberian iris. Thanks!

A.

Yes, Siberian iris foliage should be trimmed back for the winter, but only after the foliage has turned brown. Then trim back to about 2 inches in height.

Q. Siberian Iris

Do I cut off the whole stem of my Siberian iris after the blooms have faded?

Answered by

A.

Try to remove the flowers just as they begin to wilt or fade as doing this prevents them from growing seed pods. To deadhead an Iris bloom, either use your fingers or take a clean sharp pair of scissors and snip or pinch off the single bloom just behind the flowerhead.
Once all the blooms on a flower stem are gone and you don’t expect any more, you can then remove the flower stem from the plant.
