PLANT OFFER  2017
NOVELTIES AND PLANT TREASURES FROM THE TAMBERG GARDEN

In 2017 we will introduce six irises and seven daylilies as new varieties. However, we will limit the total amount of plant deliveries to a level that fits the possibilities dictated by our health. - Some stocks of our plants have been reduced by the sales of the last two years, so that we were forced to drop them from our offer.

In 2017 we ship our irises and daylilies for spring planting only (first two weeks of April).
 A condition for delivery is the arrival of your order not later than the 31st of March, 2017. Please, take notice of our terms of delivery.  Send your orders to the following address:

Lilie von Darmstadt

Iris sibirica LILIE VON DARMSTADT (Tamberg 2017)

A species-like diploid Sibirica, the clumps of which can be covered by a layer of graceful flowers. Stems are slender, self-supporting and well branched. - The “Lily” in the emblem of Darmstadt and its football club is, in reality, an iris and the unusual varietal name is to honours this and also the players of the club, which are called “The Lilies”.

SSTT1039

Iris sibirica LAVENDELTURM (Tamberg 2017)

Outperformed only by our variety Höhenflug this is one of the tallest tetraploid Sibiricas (140 cm) we know of. It is nearly as all as the Tetrasibtosa Lavender Landscape, but in contrast to this one it is fertile. It comes from a cross of our Berliner Ouvertüre with “Wilde Vier”, a converted species-like seedling of ours. The colour of the flowers is a bit more vivid than shown in the picture. The flower stems are self- supporting and can produce a twofold branching.

€ 14,--

 

 

Dreiquellentochter

Iris sibirica DREIQUELLENTOCHTER (Tamberg 2017)

This tetraploid Sibirica of classical shape is our second introduction, that involves the tetraploid form of the early flowering Iris typhifolia. It is not so exceedingly vigorous as its mother variety Drei Quellen, but it is more self-supporting  and, more important, more fertile. Like all Typhifolia hybrids it flowers early and shows its dark violet-blue flowers on spikes with one side branch and a height of 80 cm.

€ 12,--

 

 

Weißblauer Calsib

Iris calsibe-Hybride ELFENKIND (Tamberg 2014)

A hybrid between the group of Chinese Sino-Sibiricas and the group of Californian species (Californicae). Hybrids of this type are quite often short lived and need some cultural efforts. In the case of ELFENKIND we found out, that a somewhat neglected planting site shadowed by a big walnut tree did not prevent the happy growth of this variety. Stems are about 45 cm tall and sometimes produce a side branch.

Sold out for 2017

 

 

SSTT1005

Iris sibtosa-Hybride WAVE ENCORE (Tamberg 2014)

Iris sibtosa hybrid WAVE ENCORE (Tamberg 2014)
Dark blue 2/2-Tetra-Sibtosa hybrids are still rather rare. (Our earlier introduction Sibtosa Wave has nearly fully been lost due to mice damage.), WAVE ENCORE is a vigorous hybrid of this type with two side branches and good fertility. Stem are about  80 cm tall. An important  tool for  iris hybridizers.

Sibirischer Frühlingkl_2

Iris sibirica SIBIRISCHER FRÜHLING (Tamberg 2014)

From a cross between a very early flowering  Iris sanguinea species plant and the rather advanced variety On her Toes  (Schafer-Sachs, rose-lavender) we got this very floriferous white Sibirica with small, but wide petalled flowers. It flowers together with the dwarf  SDB iris and can be considered as an improvement of the variety SNOW PRINCE.

SOLD OUT FOR 2017


 


 

Glanzstück

Iris sibirica GLANZSTÜCK (Tamberg 2014)

A tetraploid Sibirica with wide petalled flowers of medium size. The deep blue colour shows a reddish hue. The plant is  quite floriferous  and develops its flowers on relatively short stems, but clearly above the leaves. Stems are abot 65 cm tall and often produce a side branch. An excellent variety for a foreground planting site.

€ 8,--


 


 

Weinkönigin

Iris sibirica WEINKÖNIGIN (Tamberg 2012)

This is one of the most floriferous tetraploids  we know of. The flower spikes often have a double side branching.  Falls and standards are wide and ruffled. Further more, the bright wine red colour has a better garden effect than the dark purple colours of other Sibiricas in this colour class. WEINKÖNIGIN is vigorous, healthy and fertile in both directions. The flower spikes are about 85 cm tall.

€ 13,--


 


 

Northern Yellow

Iris sibtosa-Hybride NORTHERN YELLOW (Tamberg 2012)

With this cultivar the yellow colour is for  the first time shown to a significant extent in a Sibirica/Setosa hybrid. This was achieved by using the yellow Sibirica TOM SCHAEFER as the seed parent. Northern yellow is vigorous, hardy and floriferous, but sterile. It is about 70 cm high.

Now sold out for 2017


 


 

1_3 Tetra-Versilaev

Iris versilaev-Hybride LIBELLENTANZ (Tamberg 2012)

We got this stately plant by back-crossing a tetraploid Iris laevigata to a tetraploid versilaev hybrid. Its  flowers are significantly larger than flowers of normal Tetra-Versilaev  hybrids and are produced on taller, branched stems. This is the first  introduction of a hybrid with a 3/4 Iris laevigata and a 1/4 Iris versicolor  parentage. Libellentanz can be planted near or even in water and it is less vigorous when planted on a dry garden bed. The flower spikes are about 75 cm high.

Sold out for 2017


 


 

Libellenflug

Iris versata-Hybride LIBELLENFLUG (Tamberg 2012)

From the BIS seed exchange we got seeds of tetraploid Iris versicolor x ensata hybrids sent by the Canadian hybridizer Toni Huber. The group of seedlings was not very exciting, but it contained a single plant which stood out by enormous vigour and also was very floriferous. Its flowers are nearly double the size of those of its siblings. The flower spikes show a double branching and are about 90 cm tall. Occasionally they need a staking.  Like its relative LibellentanzLibellenflug needs a wet planting site for best performance.

Sold out for 2017


 


 

Lavender Landscape

Iris sibtosa-Hybride LAVENDER LANDSCAPE (Tamberg 2012)

This is a plant for use in landscape gardening. It was produced by crossing a tetraploid Sibirica of near-species appearance with one of our best Tetra-Sibtosa hybrids. Like both of its parents it has lavender-pink flowers with lighter standards. The flower spikes grow to a height of 150 cm, have a twofold branching and produce seven flowers. The stems and the narrow leaves are strictly upright and in this way they produce a columnar appearance of the clump. LAVENDER LANDSCAPE is one of our most "garden-effective" cultivars.

€ 12,--


 


 

Ray Jeffs

Iris sibcal-Hybride RAY JEFFS (Tamberg 2011)

Sibcal hybrids are produced by back-crossing Tetra-Calsibes to Tetra-Sino- Sibiricas.RAY JEFFS, named in honour of a deceased English friend and iris lover, is the most beautiful in a long series of Sibcal hybrids we have produced. Whereas nearly all the others did not become named varieties due to their lack of longevity, RAY JEFFS is not only beautiful, but vigorous and long-living. The stem can develop a side branch and are 80 to 90 cm tall. According to its genetic composition this variety is only reluctantly fertile.

Now sold out for 2017


 


 

1. Versitosa

Iris versitosa-Hybride BLUEBIRD FOUNTAIN (Tamberg 2011)

Worldwide the first named variety  from the new hybrid group "Versitosa hybrids". They are produced by crossing Iris versicolor with tetraploid Iris setosa. Since I. versicolor is considered to be a tetraploid natural hybrid between I. virginica and I. setosa, Versitosa hybrids can be seen as plants with 1/4 Virginica- und 3/4 Setosa-blood. They are very vigorous and floriferous when planted at a humid place. Stems are about 80 cm tall and can develop three side branches and 11 buds. The flowers of BLUEBIRD FOUNTAIN are of medium size and have flaring falls.

Accordingly, this variety  is vigorous and floriferous. It flowers during the main Sibirica flowering period with well branched stems of 80 cm height and is, as a result of its genetic 3/1 composition, nearly sterile.

€ 13,--


 


 

SSTT806

Iris sibirica KLEINER SCHMETTERLING (Tamberg 2010)

A small flowered, diploid Sibirica of the  general shape of the wild species, however with much wider falls  and more interesting colours.The falls have a yellow background and are covered with a blue line pattern; the standards are clear blue.Flowers are produced  on well branched stems high above the narrow leaves.

   SSTT395   

Iris sibirica BLAUES FINALE (Tamberg 2009)
This is one of the Siberians with the latest flowering period in our garden.  It is a tetraploid of medium height (70 cm) with large, bright  mid-blue flowers having a special effect from the distance.  Falls are wide and the standards are upright with the tips growing a bit outward. The flower spikes are un-branched , but there are many of them.Derived from from a similar cross as RAUCHBLAU it flowers much later.

Sold out for 2017


 


 

Rauchblau

Iris sibirica RAUCHBLAU  (Tamberg 2007)

A large flowered tetraploid Sibirica derived from a cross between a mottled seedling, called "Milky  Way seedling", and a pure white Tetra-Sibirica. Falls are ruffled and show a smoky blue colour. Standards and style arms are of a lighter blue resulting in a special clump  effect of this variety. The flower stems are strong, up to 90 cm high and produce a side branch. A vigorous and fertile  new introduction.

Sibtosa Wave

Iris sibtosa-Hybride SIBTOSA WAVE (Tamberg 2007)

In the trials of the Royal Horticultural Society at Wisley this variety got an Award of Garden Merit (AGM) as a garden plant. It is a tetraploid produced by colchicine treatment, which, in contrast to earlier Tetra-Sibtosas, has wide and strongly ruffled falls as well as a strong colouration. The flower stems are about 75 cm high and develop a side branch. SIBTOSA WAVE is also an important breeding plant in the field of Sibtosa hybrids. It is pollen fertile, but only reluctantly seed fertile.

Sold out for 2017


 


 

Großer Wein

Iris sibirica GROSSER WEIN(Tamberg 2005)

Of all the wine red Siberian irises we have  flowered, GROSSER WEIN is the one  with the largest flowers. Of course, large flowers  are not always beautiful, too, but in this case large flowers with wide and elegantly ruffled falls are combined with tall and upright stems of  90 cm height. Only two flowers are formed per stem, but this is compensated by the high number of stems formed by a clump. The variety is fertile and flowers during the earlier part of  the Siberian  main flowering period.

Drei Quellen

Iris sibirica DREI QUELLEN (Tamberg 2005)

Producing flower spikes of up to 100 cm height this variety is our first tetraploid Siberian  containing genetic material of all three Sibirica species (2n=28). It was produced by a cross between  a wine red tetraplois Siberian having Iris sibirica and Iris sanguinea as ancestors with a tetraploid Iris typhifolia,  that was available to us for a short time.Like  all children of Iris typhifolia DREI QUELLEN flowers early and has rather narrow leaves. Furthermore it is extremely vigorous. An important variety for breeding early flowering tetraploid  Siberians.

Erste Sahne

Iris sibirica ERSTE SAHNE (Tamberg 2005)

Derived from a cross of VIEL CREME with a  converted seedling from GELBE MÖVE x SILVER  ILLUSION, this tetraploide Siberian produced the  largest and widest flowers we have ever seen on a white Siberian iris. Strong stems can produce up to two side branches. Related to the size of the flowers their height of about  65 cm is a bit short. However, planted in the foreground,  this variety can produce an excellent clump effect. The flowers of ERSTE SAHNE open with a cream white colour and change to white under sunlight. The variety is fertile.

€ 15,--


 


 

Blaues Schweben

Iris sibirica BLAUES SCHWEBEN (Tamberg 2005)

A diploid Siberian iris derived from SAILORS FANCY x SIGNALS BLUE. Both of these famous blue parent varieties have contributed to the light blue of BLAUES SCHWEBEN which is accentuated by some darker blue lines in the throat. In addition to the colour and the shape of the wide and flat flowers, this variety  shows a remarkable free flowering habit. A fully developed clump  can virtually be covered by light blue during the flowering period. Height of stems: 65 cm; midseason flowering period.

Sibtosa Ruffles

Iris sibtosa-Hybride SIBTOSA RUFFLES (Tamberg 2005)

By back-crossing a lavender coloured Tetra-Sibtosa-hybrid  to the strongly ruffled Siberian STRAWBERRY FAIR we obtained this highly vigorous 3/4-1/4-Tetra-Sibtosa, showing ruffled falls as well as ruffled standards. The colour of the flowers is somewhere between magenta and violet-blue; The flower spikes of 80 cm height can produce two side   branches. SIBTOSA RUFFLES flowers during the Siberian main flowering period. Because of its asymmetrical genetic composition it is sterile.

Sahnehaeubchen

Iris sibtosa-Hybride SAHNEHÄUBCHEN (Tamberg  2005)

Another Tetra-Sibtosa-hybrid, derived by back-crossing a lavender coloured Tetra-Sibtosa- hybrid to the lavender-pink Siberian LADY LILAC. In this variety the contrast between the wide pink to lavender coloured falls and the near white standards and style arms is especially strong. The picture shows the flower immediately after the bud has opened. Later, the falls will develop a more vertical position. This hybrid does not set seed. It flowers on branched stems of 75 cm height during the main flowering period of Siberian irises.

€ 12,--


 


 

Berlin Violetta

Iris sibtosa-Hybride BERLIN VIOLETTA (Tamberg 2005)

The velvety dark violet of this Tetra-Sibtosa-hybrid is reproduced only poorly by the picture. The variety has been produced by back-crossing  a lavender coloured Tetra- Sibtosa-hybrid to the wine red Siberian iris BERLIN PURPLE  WINE. It is very vigorous and is quickly forming large clumps which provide intensive colour effects. Like all 3/4-1/4-Tetra- Sibtosa  hybrids it does not set seed. It flowers on stems of  85 cm height in the second half of the Siberian main flowering period.

Tanz Nochmal

Iris sibirica TANZ NOCHMAL (Tamberg 2001)

A large flowered tetraploid with ruffled falls and standards. Flowers are held on short and stout stems formed in good numbers. The variety earns further interest due to its reblooming behaviour: well watered and well fed plants often produce reblooming spikes which are taller and better branched. That means that the variety shows signs of "preferential reblooming", a rare quality in Siberians. We know of no other Siberian rebloomer showing such a good shape of the flowers.
