If your soil has too much clay in it, the stems will tend to be short. You need to make sure they are getting plenty of nutrients so they can grow well.

Is it true that if you plant different colors of bearded iris together that the iris will eventually all come out white?

The answer is no. The color of iris will not change when they are planted with other colors. Bearded iris have individual DNA that will produce a specific color and bloom type for each individual rhizome (root). Just like your DNA makes you look like you. Your looks do not change because you mingle in a crowd of other people. Over time some iris may take over the garden because they are more hardy (dominant) than others. The not so hardy ones die out. Iris from one rhizome stock will all be alike ( this is asexual reproduction). To get a different color you need to cross pollinate two flowers that are not alike and then plant the seeds (sexual reproduction). Roxsann Elder
