Polly - Oh good! Glad to know they look okay!

I just mixed some bagged top soil with some potting mix and a handful of Black Kow compost. Fertilizing them now is the first time they've been fertilized since I got them from you. I used the MiracleGro Bloom Booster that you mix with water. That's what I used to get my Louisiana irises to bloom last year and they bloomed profusely for me.

Do irises bloom once each year or can they bloom repeatedly?

Also, do they like to be submerged in "water" during winter? Seems I was googling about irises and read they like moist but not wet soil during the cold of winter. Or maybe I'm getting them mixed up with some other iris...
