container size for Dutch carpet Iris

Susan992April 2, 2013

I have clay pots 10" X 6" and wonder if this is large enough to grow 10 iris in each pot.

thanks in advance for advice.

Susan: i'm sorry no one has responded to your question. I suspect that's because no one here has grown irises in a container. I tried many years ago, and they all died when I tried to overwinter them in a container. But, if I were ever to try again, I don't think I would try to grow more than one in a container that size. There is an iris forum where someone may be able to help.
