Irisis Removing Dead Leaves

Kathe Vasquez added on November 26, 2017 | Answered

I live in Puyallup Washington. I have Iris. They bloomed and then the leaves died. This last weekend I removed all the dead leaves. But I now see the buds coming up and I am wondering if I should have left the dead leaves to protect the buds in the cold winter with the snow coming.
