The Q&A Archives: Irises

Question: Myy irises have not bloomed much in the last few years. What should I do? They are in an area that does not get full sun till late morning into late afternoon.

Answer: Overcrowding and lack of adequate sunshine can keep your irises from blooming. They need 4-6 hours of direct sunshine in order to bloom well. I'd dig and divide them now, replanting in a sunnier spot. Enjoy!
