Is it detrimental to Siberian irises to let the seed pods mature? Will it
diminish their bloom next year? I have some large, established clumps that
bloomed beautifully this year (but I didn't label 'em -- gorgeous slate blue,
large flowers). I find the seeds quite attractive and would like to leave
them as long as possible, if it won't weaken the plants. I'd like to do the
same thing with my oriental poppies.
