Can I trim Siberian iris leaves?
My Siberian iris finished blooming last week. I have four large clumps that I just divided last year, and they came back this year bigger than ever! I'd like to put off dividing them again for another year. I feel like one needs a chain saw to get through those roots!
Anyway, if I don't divide them and pare them down some, they are starting to crowd things planted in between them. Can I trim the leaves down just a little bit (maybe take off 6 or 8 inches)? Even that much I feel would allow the other plants a lot more room to grow.
