Brat Plants

I never knew until this spring that plants can be brats.  Who would have thought it! 

A few years ago I had to move my iris from the front of the house when I put in my herb bed.  That was in ’10.  They have put up beautiful foliage every year but not a single bloom until last year.  Then a couple decided to give it a go.  A single yellow iris and my ‘Black Knight’ flowered. 

I decided that perhaps they didn’t like where they were at.  So I made a new planting bed and planned on moving them this month. 

That was until I looked out my window a few days ago…

And more are sending up flower stems!

Looks like instead of digging, I’m going to be weeding and mulching!

  1. Sometimes iris need a couple years to get re-established before they bloom.
