Hi all,

I foolishly cut my hot spice iris leaves down to 4-6 inches when digging up and preparing them for transplant. Will they flower next season do you think? or have I deprived them of a nutrient source? They all have many roots.

They should bloom! moving them will slow next years blooming not trimming the leaves back. You will get blooms ! Not to worry some people cut them back after they bloom just because they dont like the brown tips on the leaves. You will be fine!

RE: iris help

Just my experience, but cutting them back to transplant does not slow down the flowering.

Mine will flower the next spring if I get them moved early enough in the season. But If I move them in the fall, there won't be flowers the next spring, I have to wait a year,

RE: iris help

Thank you very much!
