Dividing Iris

You can see the large old root with the newer nodes and fans of leaves. Gently remove the excess soil from the roots.

Trim the roots to 5 inches.Trim the fan leave to six inches.

Using a serrated knife, carefully remove the new rhizome and fan of leaves from the old stem structure.
As a precaution, you should sterilize the knife between each cut in a solution of disinfectant.
