: I'm new to the world of the iris. I'm not sure where to cut to dead head them. I have one stem with 3 buds and one bloom. Do I cut just below the bloom or wait and cut the whole stem when they have all bloomed? Thanks.
I usually just wait until the entire stalk is done blooming and then cut it at the base. You might want to take a look around here. You could do a search on deadheading.
