Question: 399-3410
Can I divide irises and daylilies at this time? Can you recommend a good pink rose for a picket fence? Sally, St.Louis,

Mort's Answer:
You can divide irises and daylilies at this time of the year in zone 6. I prefer to do this in the fall and get a running start in the spring. I also have more to divide in the fall. You may not get as many flowers on the irises, if you do it at this time. You will do no harm but they will miss your undivided attention. I like the New Dawn climber for your picket fence. It also is a hybrid tea but I think you need the larger repeat blooming climber. You might also consider the Rosa rugosas, Conrad Ferdinand Meyer or Sarah Van fleet. These are very hardy and disease resistant,. They need little spraying and will grow from 5-8 ft. tall.
