The same thing happened to me when I divided my first clump of
Japanese iris. I waited too long too. My husband said it must have
been dry rot - I said "No way, it was sheer brute strength!"
I was disheartened to learn through this list that Japanese iris
should not be replanted in the same spot after dividing. I have some
that are not doing as well as they should - short mostly - and those
are the same ones that I divided last year or the year before. What
do others do? How do you rotate when most other plants require a
higher pH? For instance, I don't think I can put them where the
daylilies are. I've added lime to the soil there. Any thoughts?
I have Exuberent Chantey, Lace Ruff, Ipsus, Imperial Robe & Royal
Lines still blooming.
