If it was at the end of summer, I would say it's salt
accumulation, which affect some cultivars more than others. Have you used any
new fertilizer or a heavy amount?

Subject: [iris-photos] Re: Culture
Can anyone tell me what is happening with this iris? It is
slowly turning brown from the top downward. None of the other iris seem to be
effected. I do not use herbicides or pesticides so that isn't an issue. I do
not have a neighbor close enough to be causing this with herbicides and there
are quite a few iris surrounding it that should have been effected if that
were the case. I dug it out this afternoon and disposed of it. The rhizome was
large and looked healthy. Any help is appreciated.
