Re: Re: CULT: I. japonica

From: Mike00Rita@aol.com

The I. japonica I have grows and blooms under the pear trees receiving some 
summer sun. I divide it frequently now that it is established. From Carla 
Lankow (who grows hers beautifully in a pot) her suggestion is to winter it 
over in a protected location as the freezing of the flower buds usually in 
Feb. is why some people see only occasional bloom. I do feed In my site the 
biggest culprit is the slugs-so baiting is a necessity. Most of the time I 
have an abundance of lovely fronds -- last year was not good. Replenishment 
of nutrients is really important.  In the "World of Iris" it recommends: 
"good drainage, partial shade, loamy slightly acid soil high in humus 
content. Azalea and Camilla fertilizers both in soil prep and as a side 
dressing ".  It works for me.

times sake.
