This Siberian iris is part of the Peacock Butterfly series, which was created specifically for branching, bud–count and high impact color. Cherry Fling's heavily saturated color, including the distinctive cherry–colored halo it's named after, will stop visitors in their tracks. Because of its excellent branching and bud count, you can showcase a great number of these impressive blooms in late spring to early summer. It is rarely pestered by deer or rabbits and it doesn't need deadheading or staking—so long as it's watered regularly, it's the epitome of ease. The rhizome multiplies, so you can divide it and increase your spread every couple of years. Ideal for the perennial border. Iris sibirica 'Cherry Fling'
