'empty' iris buds

Posted by berthabk New York (My Page) on

I have several clumps of bearded irises that have bloome faithfully for the past several years. This year there were very few blooms, and several of the iris formed buds that seemed like empty husks. I suspect there is an insect or disease. Any ideas? Thanks.

Did you get a freeze earlier this month? That might explain it.
