How to Grow Tall Bearded Irises
Plant 14 to 16 inches apart to keep good circulation. Rhizomes should only be lightly covered by soil at 1 to 2 inches deep to prevent rot.
Fertilize 3 times each year - when new growth appears, after blooming and in fall. Recommended fertilize is one with no nitrogen or 0-10-10 to work into soil.
As with daylilies, be sure to divide your irises every 3rd year to keep them looking their best. Dig up clump and using a sharp knife, cut the rhizomes apart. Keep the newer around the outer edge and discard old woody centers.
