Re: Help

Hi Marsha

When irises are heading up quickly, the stem in some cultivars is very soft and bends easily in the wind.  Sometimes while still shooting upwards they get a very windy day(and turn sideways) then the wind stops (and they go upright again) and you end up with a couple of right angles in the stem.

Please forgive me up front if I am not doing this right as I am more of a lurker than participant.
These iris were standing straight this morning and as the day went by "goosenecked".  I am south of Nashville and did get hit by the rains and flooding.  I expected stalks on the ground, wind damage, etc but I can't remember ever having a stalk go soft during the day.  Is this due to the rains?  Humidity?  Should I do something?
Thanks in advance,
Marsha Williams
