Re: new pictures/iris

I was told to divide them every 3-5 years. I lift starts any time including
when they're in bloom. Just get them planted ASAP. Cut the bloom stem on new
transplants. I leave the foliage as long as it's green. Others insist it
must be cut back. There is some good info out there, online & in catalogs
