Is there any hope for the iris that I dug up and didn't get transplanted until the roots dried? Also, because of iris borer, I did a lot of trimming on the rhizome. Will the plant grow if all of the leaves have been removed? Thanks for the advice.

Hi M,

According to this site, they can be out of the ground for a week or two. I don't think the leaves should matter. It's worth a try.

A friend sent me some, and they were dry by the time they got here. They're growing.

I lost several to soft spot this year also. I'm going to work a lot of compost in so that doesn't happen again. They need a good draining soil.

dried iris roots

Hi, Gami! I thought you might come to my aid! I have an iris bed ready to plant: tilled it yesterday and the iris are all ready to plant. Thought I'd put them in rows, which is a change from my random plantings. Thanks again for the iris site. I can see that it's a good one, but it freezes once it's loaded and I can't even scroll the page, otherwise, I would have gone there for help.
