When you divide your irises because they are too thick and have stopped blooming, how far apart should you space them when you are replanting?

TBs should be a foot apart if possible.

I dont know what TB's are but I assume I should plant about a foot apart. Thanks so much for helping me. DG'ers are the best!

They look like the pictures. I disagree with dividing and replanting only 12" apart. You will just be redividing again in 2 years. 18" is better.

18" to 24" for the bearded and at least 24", better 3' for the Louisiana.
