When should I plant iris?


The best time to plant iris is in August or early September. They shouldn't be moved or transplanted before this, because they are in a semi-dormant state for the six weeks following their blooming period. This semi-dormant time is when iris are preparing themselves to produce flowers for the next year.

I was given some Iris Tubers today (March 26) and I want to plant them although I know its not planting season. I just hate to see them die. If I go ahead and plant them...what happens?

Plant them immediately. They may not flower this year, so if they do not, do not get overly concerned.
