Iris not blooming

collinw(7b)May 2, 2012

We had an early spring and all of my early season iris bloomed about 2 weeks early. Then we had a cooler week, and now my middle season iris seem to be behind. They should be blooming now and they are not blooming. They have always bloomed reliably. Has anyone else every experienced this?

I got the same weather patterns as you did but my irises are thriving more then they did last year odd enough. It might be that maybe your irises might be crowding each other. It's also not unheard of for irises to skip a bloom. It could be anything really.

But I'm sure if you give your irises some time and patience they could still bloom this year. Irises can be a bit tricky to predict.
