September is a great time to divide your Louisiana Iris
They are dormant late summer making this time of the year a great time to divide and share with a friend. Each year they spread, eventually causing the plants to become crowded. Over crowding leads to lower vigor and less flowering. Your Iris will thank you in the spring with plenty of blooms. To divide your irises, dig up a clump using a shovel. Be careful not to damage rhizomes. Locate the young rhizomes that have green foliage at their tips and use these for transplanting. Before re planting make sure to add 4″ layer of compost and fertilizer and work into existing soil. Plant new transplanted rhizomes about 1-2″ below soil surface. Spread mulch and water thoroughly. When spring arrives they will be beautiful!!!
