Re: bloom cycle




Tom - Your answer about bloom cycle of iris is a reminder of how important
post bloom season growth is for next year's bloom.  Does the next year's
flower primordium form immediately after bloom finishes or after a few weeks
or does it keep trying to form all summer?  Is it pretty much the same for
all types of bearded iris and varieties?

:In the same vein, does dividing too often delay or deter first bloom on new
:increases?

So it would seem the answer to this is that it depends - if it's hot and dry
all summer and the roots are damaged or removed during dividing, bloom
definitely would be affected.  Phil Williams says the plants he divided last
summer during our drought did very poorly this year (problems with his
irrigation system also).
