Hi I was gifted with a Iris blue, I went on the internet and there are so many varieties and I’m not sure what variety this one is until today I think this might be a blue Spuria? How do i take care of it and when do I plant it. I was given this about a month ago had flowers they soon faded and I cut them off now I have these long things I think they are the stems. What do I need to do cut them down etc, I still watered about a week ago and i was reading info on the spuria and states no watering these appear in late summer etc. What is your advice please and thank. I’m attaching a picture. Thank you for you help.

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I don't think that it would matter much, though, since pinning down an exact ID will be very close to impossible with Iris flowers.

Regardless, most Iris have very similar care.
