Hi Everyone! I am Linda McGill and I garden in south Texas (zone 9) I planted irises here for the first time last fall. All have survived so far but some are huge plants and some are really tiny. I really hope they will bloom for me! Our climate is pretty harsh here-really blistering long summers.
Name: Dee Stewart Willamette Valley OR Snowpeak Iris
Sorry both my daughter and grand daughters had all the computers so I just found this
When you receive your iris unpack in a cool dry area or plant them that day, Where you receive alot of snow. Plant them about 1" below the surface of the soil but no deeper.
Now for Kentucky you could plant them the way I do which is like a goose gliding on a lake (fan and rhizome should be barely covered to anchor it in the soil)
Then in spring as soon as they show nice growth or the weather allows you to fertilize with a low nitogen fertilizer (first number) then not too long after bloom or at the end of the season fertilize again.
If either of you would like a complete kind just go to the upper right of the cubit and my webpage site is there for a direct link
Give me you address and either I will email it to you both or mail it to you
