 I had several irises that had this happen with them
also. One I really didn't care about but the others
were newer introductions. Without my notes I think it
was a total of 4 different plants. 
 What I did was completely strip off everything that
would hold water(thinking about rot) and cut the stalk
back just a little.I left most of the stalk attached. 
 My bloom has been over for a month and I noticed the
other day when I was out there that 2 of them do have
little bitty increases coming up on the sides, so I am
hopeful that they will make it. As for the other
ones..I didn't see anything on them so but I didn't
dig around at the base to see if I could see anything.
Think I will go out tomorrow and do a closer
inspection and see what is going on with them.
  The reason I tried this was because I figured I
didn't have anything to lose.
