This spring the tops of all my iris appear to be dark and black after the snow melted some are even moldy. Should I cut these tips back to the ground and will they sprout again when the weather warn

Definitely prune off all the winter damage. I cut the leaves down to about 3" from the soil level each fall and they grow new foliage every spring.
