Time Of Year To Plant Iris Bulbs?

Answer

The time of year to plant an iris bulb would greatly depend upon the climate in which you live. If you are in zones 8 - 10, you should be able to plant between July going into October, depending on the night time temperature. If the evening temp does not go below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, you can plant into October. The planting would also depend on the variety of Iris that you select. When planting the bearded iris, the stem must be positioned so the feeder roots grow downward into the soil and the temperature should be over 40 degrees.
