Plant your Louisiana iris in moist soil that has composted, organic material added. Dig holes a little deeper than the rhizomes, add composted material and cover with an inch of soil above the rhizome. Plant in full sun to part shade. Once planted, water well. Louisiana iris may also be planted in containers and placed in your pond with an inch or two of water above the top of the pot or used in your bog filter to help remove nutrients from the water before it is cycled back into your pond, thus helping avoid algae issues.
Divide your iris in late summer or early fall, every 2 - 3 years, as needed.
When Louisiana iris are planted in containers and placed in the pond you may fertilize with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the fertilizer tabs into the soil around the roots of your rhizomes.
