It's hot. Summer in Texas, what can I say. There was a project I wanted to get my hands on outside today, but I waited until the shadows took over my front yard and the temperature began to creep down (96 degrees at 7:25 pm) to get started. I have several Yellow Flag Iris in the landscaping, but they have become large and in desperate need of dividing.
I got out the pitch fork and loosened up the soil around the root ball. After that it was easy to divide out several large clumps of rhizomes for replanting.
I only replanted four, but that was plenty to fill in the blank spaces.
I had several left over, but the rhizomes on those were not large so I am letting them go. It's okay, really. I still have 6 more to divide.
But that, my friends, will be another day. One a day is enough in the Texas heat.
