how deep should i plant iris plants?

Thanks for writing! It depends on what type of iris you're growing. Traditional tall-bearded irises should be planted shallowly, so the the top of the fleshy rhizome is uncovered.

But types like Siberian iris should be planted so the crown (where the leaves meet the roots) is at or just below the soil level.
