Japanese irises

claubill(z3Sud ONT)June 8, 2006

We have some Japanese irises, at least that's what my husband says. They are tall, slinky, and bluish. When they are done flowering and if I clip them back to the base, do you think they'll produce more flowers this year or am I dreaming?

Hi Claubill, I love these irises and have started collecting them. This site should answer any questions.M

I treat mine like other iris. I clip the flower once it is spent, and let the plant rejuvenate itself over the summer. Alas, personally, I have not had any reflower within the year. They are beautiful when they are in bloom though, and they seem to come earlier than the other iris.
