I have thinned out the Iris from my pond and have an excess of about 8 clumps that are about 10 pounds each. They are mostly purple flowers with a few yellow. Holiday Island 479-363-9052

This is the rather petite Iris that, in a pot you sink into a water feature or natural pond?

They don't have to be in boggy conditions:

Brular, I'd sure like some of those - I'm out here at HI, also - I'll be calling you in the morning. Please post if/when they're gone.

These plants are quite large and very vigorous. They are heavy feeders (they consume nutrients to keep my pond water clear) and produce abundant leaves about 3 feet high.

Got some this afternoon - thanks, brular!:D

There were still several large masses remaining when I left but you need to bring a good-sized tub if you want some, a 5-gallon bucket won't cut it -

Island - are you planting yours in the ground or in water?
