I've heard Sept. is best fore dividing Iris rhizomes, but HOW do I tell which part of the rhizome is the part that will BLOOM next year? Last years blooms will not bloom again, right?

When you dig the iris rhizomes you will notice that the new growth is at the ends but that the center in non-productive. Simply break the rhizome ends off and replant them, discarding the old centers. The replanted ends will grow and flower for you next year.
