Iris Plants
Q.

Why did my Irises suddenly and completely not break ground this spring?

I live in northern New Jersey. I haven't disturbed the planting area. I've had beautiful blooms and plants for 3 years. Now this year nothing came up. I have daffodils in the same garden which are doing great. Can you suggest some answers?

Excess water; flooding could have killed off the plants.
Also pests like gophers and moles can kill the rhizomes.
