Talking about Louisiana Iris (Iris 'Dixie Deb'), chuck7701 wrote:

Looks like the one I have, more of the common variety I believe. Fast grower, easily divided and propagated from seed. Makes a great background fence border. Grows in shade or sun, tolerates some drought or dry soil, but will wilt, fall over and not recover height very well if soil dries out for too long. Tends to start wilting or falling over in fall naturally.

Discards all fronds annually with new spring growth beginning in late winter. With spring and new growth, individual fronds start yellowing and die over couple months as new growth emerges. To avoid the unsightly mess and constant pulling off dying growth in spring, cut all the old growth off to the bottom with scissors or trimming shears in late November, early December before the new growth appears, or you can pulling dead debris off for months!

Seed pods can be harvested and sown in pots, or I just shallow bury the dry pods in the fall and transplant the seedlings.
