Mushy Iris Blossoms
Several years ago I planted some bearded iris (Beverly Sills). The have multiplied and the blossoms are always huge. But about one-third to one-half of the buds fail to open and stay bunched up like fleshy little fists. Then they turn wet and mushy. What could be causing this?
I have had a lot of trouble with botrytis blight. It attacks the peonies and even did in the petunias. Could that be the source of the problem?
