RE: Can I cut back my irises now? (Follow-Up #3)

posted by: eloise_ca on 07.10.2008 at 09:12 am in Iris Forum

Read on one of the iris societies that one should cut the flower stalk once it bloomed and to only cut off those leaves that are damaged. I suppose if all the leaves are damaged, then do what Liz does.

RE: New to irises - .... ??? cut stalks/fans? (Follow-Up #1)

First read the FAQ for more information.

Plant ASAP with the top of the rhizome left exposed. You can dig in a little bonemeal or bulb food first. Water well and allow soil to dry out before next soaking.

The flower stalk is removed after blooming. No need to cut foliage unless plant keeps tipping over.
