Haircuts for Siberians?

This may be heresy, but I can't help it: my Siberians are out of control, and every time I look at them I can't help but want to give them mohawks. I love them during the garden's blue period, but sheesh. How wrong would it be to give them a little haircut? Maybe just enough so that their leaves don't flop all over?

RE: Haircuts for Siberians?

Nobody here will ever truly know what you do with your iris. You don't need to ask for our permission. I have never had Siberian iris, but I would imagine that reducing their leaf area for feeding themselves would perhaps slow them down a bit. I think experimenting is okay, as long as you don't get too caught up in a negative result, if there is one.
