Hello, I read the article on dividing iris. I was going to do this today, but realized I may be too late. We live in Alaska, and fall is in full swing. Should I wait until next year and do it earlier in the summer, or am I safe to do it now? My iris did not bloom much this summer, and I have never divided them, so I feel I need to do this--but we can get a frost any week now.
Thanks for your answers,

You should be ok to divide them. With irises, you want to be more concerned about when the ground will freeze, rather than frost, so you should still have a few weeks for the plants to settle before that happens.
