When to cut Iris Stalks

gypsysparrow(9)April 22, 2010

I know you cut them down as close as you can to the rhizome, (right?), but how long after all the blooms are done do you cut? Right away or wait? Does it take away energy from other blooming stalks? THANKS!

I cut mine down immediately. I haven't seen any ill effects here in So Cal.
