Re: japanese iris
Japanese Iris can be tempermental and even take a couple of years to settle
in an stop sulking. Some folks help this process along by planting their new
JI's first in a pot, then sitting the pot into a child's wading pool until
new growth is well underway and strong new roots formed. Don't give up on
them... trust me, it's worth the wait.
JI's need acidy soil and LOTS of water... given these conditions, plus sun -
you'll have spectacular bloom NEXT year!
Kathy Guest - lovin' those JI's!
