What Houzz contributors are saying:

1. Begin with the star.Gerald Darby Siberian Iris(Iris x robusta ‘Gerald Darby’)In early spring bold fans emerge, each blade a rich plum at the base, fading to green toward the tips. In May black stalks rise high to produce a profusion of buds that open to small violet flowers splashed with yellow.As the flowers fade, so does the unique foliage color, although the fat green seedpods continue to add interest.This easy-care iris loves moist conditions and can even be grown in 2 to 4 inches of standing water, making it a possible alternative to flag irises, which are invasive in many states. It is equally attractive planted in groups in a garden setting, where drip irrigation could be used to meet its water requirements.Origin: Garden hybridWhere it will grow: Hardy to -30 degrees Fahrenheit (USDA zones 4 to 9; find your zone)Water requirement: Average to wet soilLight requirement: Dappled shade to full sunMature size: To 3 feet high and 2 feet wideBenefits and tolerances: Deer resistantWhen to plant: Spring or fall
