I recently read in a local Iris club bulletin that if you were going to
dig and separate an iris clump, that you should withhold water for six
weeks to make tham go dormant. It has been my impression that irises
(TB's at any rate) go dormant on their own regardless of watering
Another question: How deep do iris roots (TB"S) typically go, and is
that the depth at which one should be concerned about the availability
of moisture? I guess that is another way of asking how deep should it be
dry before you water?
