how to plant

Houston Heights, TX(Zone 9a)

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!

TB is the classification for Tall Bearded.

What kind of irises are they?

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.

Thanks for defining TB. I have this kind as well as Louisiana and the zig zag.

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