Q; The African iris I planted last fall did not bloom this spring. What can I do to get it to flower?
A: African iris usually need one year, once in the ground, before they will come into bloom. You should get plenty of flowers next spring and possibly a few this fall.
Q: Some of the daylilies I planted this spring seem to be dying. I planted a mixture of them and they all bloomed fine but now all of the leaves are dying on some plants. What would cause this?
A: Daylilies can be evergreen, semi-evergreen or deciduous. The semi-evergreen and deciduous varieties will show signs of decline in the fall but they will reemerge in spring and flower again. The evergreen ones will remain green all winter unless it gets very cold.
