My irises are HORRIBLE this year! It is always something with them, and I just don't know if I have the energy to fight a new battle with them every year. I suppose it is because of the trip I took at the end of winter - still snow on the ground - two weeks later I come home to 80 degree weather and don't have the time to cut back and clean up and "merit" my irises this year. I figure it is too late as I have missed the two consecutive days of 72 degrees when the borers will hatch. The leaves are all dead and horribly spotted; they were perfectly beautiful last fall. Is there a quick cure for this condition? I have started to individually cut off the dead leaves and spotty areas on individual plants, but I don't know if it will help or just be a wasted effort.
