Iris

My iris' have been beautiful this spring.  Many are loaded with 4-5 blooms per stalk.  Stalks seem to be very sturdy.  I dead head every morning and evening.  Why do my stalks continuously fall over?

Re: Iris

Hard to say without seeing it , week stems can be a result of several factors.

First check the rizones for rot or soft spots. Iris can get bores in the rizones. Also be careful about using a high nitrogen fertilizer, too much fertilizer can cause weak stems. Some varieties produce such big flowers they may need to be staked.

Can you send pictures to custserv@burpee.com so we can see what is going on.
