When planting in ponds, choose a one gallon container or larger, using loam soil. Keep water level even with top of pot. Louisiana Iris are great when grown in containers with holes, fabric planting bags or in planting baskets in the pond. This allows the plant roots access to oxygen. When plant roots have access to oxygen, they grow faster, they also take up additional nutrients in the water and that helps with algae elimination. Handmaiden Louisiana Iris are also great for bank erosion in stream beds or on the banks of ponds or lakes. When planting in the terrestrial garden, use rich composted soil and plant with pointed ends of the rhizomes up and roots down with an inch of soil above the rhizomes.Water well.  Cut foliage down to an inch above rhizome in the fall and mulch to prevent from cold winter damage. Remove mulch in the spring. Divide every 3 - 4 years, as needed, in late summer or early fall.
