When to cut back Iris Siberica?

When is the optimum time to cut back my Iris Siberica? They are so 'lush' this year they're swamping everything else growing nearby Thanks Jane

    If they're that big it's dividing that you really want to do (and you won't have trouble finding anyone who wants the excess!). Better to tie up the leaves to minimise swamping, remove when they die back and divide in spring as the growth restarts.

    Hi Alison , thank you for your response. I will certainly divide them in the spring. They are such a beautiful colour, I've even included a photo of some in my gallery.
