Mark, Your iris seem in the same condition as mine. No, I doubt they
are dead, but dormant. My Sibs and Japs go dormant each winter and the
foliage(I got it right!) turns brown. I cut it back to the ground once
it is all brown (in the fall). You should soon see new green growth
starting. Some of my Sibs are beginning to grow. I would not fertilize
until you see new growth.
