Japanese Iris

Maybe this is the year to tackle the growing Iris issue. Not shown, but I half bury a large planter to the corner/front of the Iris, when they are done blooming and their leaves begin to get ratty, I put a bushy plant in the planter to sortof hide the leaves. I already plant Sedums in front of the Peony - for me the sedums just get growing when the Peony are done. The Iris population is now huge, a great show in Spring but looks like a hot mess come summer.

RE: Japanese Iris

Gorgeous clump of Siberian iris. When the foliage begins to yellow you can cut it back half way and when that yellows cut it to the ground.
