Isn't Jan 31st too early for iris?
All of a sudden, this bed of iris at the house I bought recently has two buds and one has broken color (pale blue).
I really mean all of a sudden because three days ago I was trying to figure what kind of iris this bed was since the foliage has not withered or dried but still lush and green.
It seems it's the bearded type.
But seriously, January???
I realize this is down drain of a gutter and against a brick wall with full sun but still earlier than I ever
expected any blooms.
(and I must thank the dog for frequently walking through the bed to pee on it)
Should I wait for the first bud to open before cutting a stalk to bring into the house?
