Unless you remove "chunks" of irises with the soil remaining on the iris
roots. I moved irises in the snow in March of 1986 and had good bloom in
May. We cut a circle around each clump and lifted the entire clump. We had
enough clumps to fill the bed of the pickup for 3 trips.
With large clumps you could cut the clumps into quarters and probably still
have some bloom. Iris are forgiving. However, you can't move "bareroot"
iris without sacrificing the bloom.
