Hi Tanya,

The correct answer about mulching depends on what climate you have.  The 
general part of the country that you live in and USDA Zone would be helpful.  
In general, anyplace where summers are hot and moist should not mulch bearded 
irises because it can promote rot.  In a very dry climate a little mulch 
could help keep the roots from baking.  But always keep the mulch away from 
the crown of the plant.
