Re: Dividing Japanese Iris?

Maybe not, but in Knoxville, TN, Sunnyridge Gardens grows them successfully
in ordinary clay soil with lots of fresh sawdust mulch.  And their clay isn't
even the deep red stuff, it's the fairly shallow, silty shale stuff - good
and acid, however.  

And Iris City Gardens in Nashville, TN, has them too, so it is at least
possible to grow them well enough to sell a few.  But Arkansas doesn't
average over 50 inches of rain/year like we do.
