iris care for winter

mommy115(9)October 15, 2012

I live in a small town next to San Jose California. We rarely get down to 32 but it can happen, no snow, and at night usually down to high 30s or low 40s. I don't know what I should do to prepare my irises for the winter. Do I cut them down? I currently have the leaves cut about half way down so they are about 7 or 8 inches tall. ty for your help! :)

You can leave the leaves. Heh heh. They do not have to be cut down at all in your climate.
