|Thank you so much for all of the amazing photos.
I have newfound inspiration to once again add Tall Bearded Iris to my perennial gardens.
A huge question for all the Iris experts: years ago I planted TBI on the east side of our barn, which receives intense morning sun.
I had purchased them from an Iris grower in California.
They were just superb for many, many years.
When they aged I dug up and divided them, planting the smaller ones in a different bed.
It has been YEARS; last summer FINALLY one bloomed a single flower.
The other transplants are still tiny, but alive.
Is the soil wrong?
Are they not getting enough sun?
The transplants are on the west facing garden with afternoon sun.
I heavily fed them with organic mulch that stinks with microbial activity and steams.
Not much improvement there; I'll be ordering some beauties soon.
The Daylilies thrive in the same bed, as do other perennials.
