I had similar problems with sudden stalk failure this past summer and came to believe that it was because of the extreme amount of moisture we had received.... essentially water-logging the stalks.


My plants are on well drained medium weight loam over a substrate of gravel and clay, so I don't usually have any problem with excess moisture, slugs, fungus, etc, but 2006 was the exception.

This photo taken in June, 2006.
I had a nice stalk of this for our iris show, but the day before the show, it just FELL OVER!  I had a lot of that last year.  I called it "stalk rot." Anyone else have that problemo?
I assumed the excess of weeds caused the rot to take a number on the stalk, with a lack of sunlight and air circulation to keep things healthy down there. 
It was recommended to me that I use it further in breeding, so I did!  I put the stalk in a vase here in my house, and after every flower opened, I grabbed the pollen and went daubing.  I have seeds from 'Fancy Woman', 'Balderdash' , and 'Prestige Item' using the pollen. 
Anyway, here's the parentage.  I really like this iris. Just wish it would grow a little more vigorous for me.
