how far down to cut?

cbfindlay(z6 OH)May 26, 2012

Found borers way far down a bunch of iris ... almost but not quite down into the rhizome.

How far down can I cut the fans, and still replant the rhizome? I pretty much had to cut the fans completely off of a couple.

I'd plant them. I've had numerous irises survive being scalped like that.
