The first two or three years here, Mariah was grown under a pine bark mulch 
in about half sun. Later plant was moved to a heavy clay location in full 
sun, never divided, never cleaned of dead foliage, never fertilized. Indeed, 
none of these actions have been taken to date. Running about 10 years behind 
according to Mariah. Tough in every respect. Bloom a little short but 
consistently and profusely. I believe you are in for an enlightening 
experience with mulch in general as it relates to irises. Lots of 
misinformation in today's garden lore gets repeated until it is accepted as 
fact, exacerbating back aches that not necessarily need be.
