gemini_sage said:Chelle, your mention of losing a potted iris brought something to mind- the potting medium. A lot of potting soils are too moisture retentive for bearded irises. I use Miracle Grow potting soil (not my first choice, but the best I can find locally) and cut it by half or more with fine bark mulch. I'm aiming for a sharply draining mix that isn't too rich.
