Variegated Sweet Iris Growing and Maintenance Tips

Iris grow best in a moist to average, well-drained soil, in full sun. They dislike wet conditions and excess winter moisture. Ensure that the rhizome is slightly about soil level when planting. Once the flowers are spent, remove stalks to keep a tidy looking plant. If plants are overcrowded, flowers will not be as prolific.
