Answer: Sometimes iris slow down due to low fertility or to overcrowding or to old age. You might try fertilizing them if you haven't done so already and dividing them if they are crowded. Dividing can be needed as soon as three years after planting if they were planted close together in the beginning. Discard the oldest portions of the rhizomes and replant only the healthy, younger more vigorous sections.
