Seven (or Six) Apostles

I recently bought a plant that has 7 blooms that look like big yellow tulips. The plant is about 3-1/2 feet tall. I have no idea what the real name is, but my sister thinks it might be called Seven Apostles. Have you ever heard of one of these, and if you have, how do I take care of it? It is my yard at this time and I just wondered if I need to bring it in the house this fall. I appreciate any advice that you can give me about this bush.

Transplant Walking Iris

How do you transplant your walking iris after it starts producing “babies”? Mine is growing out of the pot and I need to thin it and start new pots.

Propagation of these "babies" is easy. You can either set each baby in a 4-inch pot of soil while still attached to the mother plant, or simply snip the babies off and repot as needed. Both methods work fine.

How Can I Grow Neomarica Caerulea From Seeds?

I have a few Neomarica caerulea seeds and don’t know when or how to start the seeds. Could you help me, please? Thanks!

ANSWERS

Research shows that starting the seeds right away after harvesting from the plants is the best.
Set the seeds in a good quality potting mix and keep moist and warm.
I was not able to find a accurate time frame for germination.

Here are some links with growing information.

Walking Iris

My potted walking iris (new last fall) did not bloom but one stem has bent over and a new small plant has started. What should I do with the new plant?

ANSWERS

Walking Iris may be more suited to growing in the ground.
The new plantlet grow would normally fall to the soil and root and continue to grow in the garden.
This is how this plant get's it's name as it spreads or 'walks' through the garden.
You can plant the new plantlet into another pot if you like.
