Luckily, I don't think irises taste very good.

But they do smell good, I sniffed.

If I could get all the pasture fencing redone, I would get a burro or donkey and more goats but do not think so

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.

Welcome Linda

You should have no problems with blooms as long as you planted the rhizome just under the soil so that they do not get too hot

Have many customers and friends in zone 9

Hey Dee -- what planting instructions would you give for a new-to-Iris grower in the Minneapolis area of Minnesota?
Every day is a second chance. Every day is precious time.

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

Hope this helps

I found out if you over fertilize you will get wonderful green foliage too. I love iris.
