Iris growth regulators

alfred_growerMarch 10, 2009

i have a wonderful border of different Iris louisiana varieties, but last year i cut them back about this time as they had started to get too tal for my liking and i lost of lot of them. Does anyone know of growth regulators that are easy to use and effective on Iris,

Please help as i dont want to have the same disasters as i had last year.

Thanks in advance

Hi Alf,

I know of no growth regulators that would be effective on Louisiana irises. I would suggest if you don't like the height to replant with some shorter varieties, or maybe even some different irises. Some of the LAs do get very tall, and that's the way they are supposed to be.
