Sorry, never saw this thread brother Wayne!! But winter is almost here and my irises just stay right where are in the pond and they freeze hard and still come back nice!

My irises have now froze hard and fell over after this last killer frost.

IRIS' PRODUCE AN ENZYME THAT KEEPS THEM FROM FREEZING. CUT THEM DOWN TO A COUPLE INCHES ABOVE THE ROOT BALL AND FORGET THEM!!

I was given a pick-up load of yellow irises last summer, couldn't give them all away, so the left-overs were dumped on the compost heap. THEY CAME BACK IN THE SPRING!!! You can't kill the things, even if you try!
