iris hollandica foliage

I have many of them and the foliage just looks terrible leaning and falling over. What do you all do about this? I have thought about getting rid of them because I will have to look at the leaves until they wilt and they haven't even started yet.

Any solutions?

RE: iris hollandica foliage

Are these the same as the bulbous Dutch iris?

If so I agree about the foliage. You can loosely bend it over and tie, again loosely, at the base. My Dutch iris foliage yellows from the tips. I cut it back in increments as it yellows. Mostly I have other plants blooming that distract the eye.
