First bloom of siberian iris is dead

The first bloom of my siberian iris all withered and died. Should I prune the dead leaves? And will there be a scond bloom? Hamilton, NJ

Hi, Yes, you can clip away the dead flowers to make the plant look tidier. It is possible the plant may bloom again, but there's no guarantees. Siberian iris generally bloom just once a year.
