Hi Tom,
I frequently transplant in spring. I always try to move as much soil as possible so as not to disturb the roots. Ever After was placed in a nicer location this spring and bloomed better than it has ever done for me. It was in too much shade. I also moved a large bed that ended up being impossible to get the grass out of. They were all new last august. About half of them bloomed. The same as in other beds with new iris. I do not really recommend dividing in early spring though as it seems to set the rhizomes back and if it is wet they can rot.
Sincerely Wendy

  This spring I did the unheard of transplanting!   Last fall came before  I  
  had finished.  the transplanting.   In April I didn't like the looks of the 
  bed - so I moved  the irises to another bed !  This time I did not cut the 
  leaves back, but the rhizomes were buried into the  ground to hold them up -- 
  some of them had bloom stalks!!  AND they bloomed! - some  stalks started 
  after the move.  They look o.k. - maybe a little harrassed, but they are 
  making it and  -- they look better than they did where they were!  This was 
  an experiment, so will have to wait to see how they get along thru the year!  
  I'm not recommending this, however!  (And of course "I" did not do the work - 
  unfortunately I can only supervise it!)    Rosalie nr Baltimore, USA  Zone 7
