To die or not to die - Frosted Starlight TB

20 years ago I bought a very pale blue Iris which bloomed prettily 
once and then promptly vanished off the face of the earth.  Always 
hankered after it and this year bought Frosted Starlight  whose 
description seem to match my memory of it.  It produced one 
bloomstalk with several buds and very few leaves.  I cut the 
bloomstalk off as close to the rhizome as possible and enjoyed the 
flowers inside.  However,  the rhizome looks OK but there is half a 
leaf left only.   Would anyone suggest flinging a bit of bone meal 
down or I saw alfalfa in our latest health shop being sold in little 
sachets rather like a grain  for human consumption  would that be any 
good?  Any advice very welcome
