Re: How do YOU grow irises?

I have iris growing both in dedicated beds and mixed beds.  In the 
mixed beds, I always try and place them in the center of the bed so 
that I can have some of the lower growing annuals and perennials in 
bloom after the irises are finished.  I now have rebloomers growing 
in some of the mixed beds, but I may make a separate rebloomers bed 
this fall.

I did plant many iris in the narrow strip between the sidewalk and 
the street.  I was a little worried about them here because of the 
salt.  But they have done very well in spite of poor soil (bad 
clay)  I keep telling the neighbors that its easier to grow iris 
than to mow :^}
