Iris grows from thick roots or clumps of bulbs. In either case, the plants can be lifted, divided and re-planted. This is normally done when the plants have died back in autumn or in late summer for bulbs.

 German iris, the large flowered kind with thick surface rhizomes are divided in July, the strongest young rhizomes being replanted.
