Too soon to go into the water?

Hello. I am in need of some help.
I only have a tiny pond, and last autumn I took out the baskets with Iris ensata and Lythrum salicaria in, as they need drier conditions in winter.
The Iris are starting to regrow now.
Is it too soon to put them back?
Thanks. Daisy

RE: Too soon to go into the water?

Thanks Dee, I have put them back in now.

Here is one of my Iris ensatas last year.




RE: Too soon to go into the water?

So beautiful! I am in Zone 7 and left my things in the pond all winter. They are still green and even one iris that did not seem to grow at all last year has started shooting up. It's still very cold here but things are looking good so far.

RE: Too soon to go into the water?

How pretty! So jealous of your weather. it's cold here too...I hate it. I have 2 houses & both have ponds. The iris are in the stream.When I shut down for the winter I just let them there in their pots.They sprout right back every year...........Tough little buggers.
