I burn foliage in spring, just as soon as foliage is dry enough to 
burn. Plants may look awfull after burn, but  plants bounce back 
quickly. I have a series of photos of Siberian iris spring burn, 
showing foliage before burn, the burning,  after with the charded 
remains, several of growth through the season, and plants in full bloom 
 at proper time.  I also burn large TB clumps, same result. Not only 
does it kill borers, but also weed seeds around plant, which are weed 
free in spring where fire  extended.
