Siberian irises are useful in that they bridge the gap between spring and summer flowering perennials while offering finely architectural foliage for the whole season. Iris sibirica ‘Butter and Sugar’ is a popular pale yellow cultivar that provides a nice departure from the standard purples. Tidy architectural foliage all season. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
