Dear Doreen,
     A good way to keep any cut flower fresh longer, irises included, is to 
recut them each day and put a splash of Listerine in the water.   This 
inhibits the growth of bacteria in the water.   Slicing about 1/4" of the 
stem off each day insures that it will continue to draw up water.   Do this 
with a sharp knife rather than scissers.
                                                              Pat in Dallas
