gift received of asst'd irises
I recently got permission from a friend to dig up as many irises as I wanted from her deceased mother's garden. Of course, in August all evidence of color is gone but I could tell by the size of the leaves & rhizomes that some are large(tall), some medium, some smaller. I've kept each clump together for now but plan to separate them when planting. (I'll keep like rhizomes together -separated but together) How would you plant them now -just randomly but sort of sizing them and them re-arrange next summer after labeling them by color? Or do you like the random color look?
