Bearded Iris and Sweet Woodruff?
I inherited an iris bed at home I purchased. I redid the bed last fall, pulling all the iris out, weeding, adding compost and thinned and culled the iris and replanted them. They are doing very well this year. I've weeded once. They are in bloom right now.
I know I can't mulch the iris like the rest of the flower beds. I'd like to plant something like Sweet Woodruff and let if create a carpet of green and white but wasn't sure if that would lead to the same issues as if I had mulched the iris.
The iris are in the middle of a large border bed and it looks funny to have flowers and mulch and then a 10' break with no mulch and then the mulch picks up again. I'd liek to disguise the fact that there is no mulch.
Any ideas? The bed is iris only, about 3' x 10'.
