Walking iris times nine

Blast... just deleted the entirety of my post because I pushed a button  and I'm still trying to figure out my new phone.

Anyways, my friend Jacki gave me the start to a walking iris back in 2011. It decided it liked me, and grew itself a nice little root system after I moved to Florida. Found it a pot so it could move from its gas station cup into something more p permanent and roomy.

While we were staying with David's grandpa, Iris favored us with a few blooms that were blue, white, and heavily scented. She then proceeded to continue growing beautiful, green shoots until the pot was dwarfed by a small forest.

Yesterday I went to go split Iris into some new pots and found NINE separate plants. ... and had only picked up two extra pots. Some garden forums I'd found mentioned planting walking irises in groups of three in a triangle, so that's what I went with. I put three plantlets in each pot in a little triangle . . . And now I get to wait and see if they like their new digs :-)
