When they are to crowded they tend to either not bloom or bloom very little. I always separate mine give some as gift and take some to ponds.

@cyndi I had separated this guy late and it is actually two next to each other under some rocks... I ran out of baskets for the water plants, didn't plant for this guy tripling in size in just one year

My did same I got some galvanized tubs to make more pots(water filled) for them around yard. I even used an old crock pot incert (the crock pot was old and stopped working) for a small one on my steps.

@mrsmitch http://www.americanmeadows.com/perennials/iris/louisiana-iris-black-gamecock This is one of the sites about them. It is a marsh plant but it does perfectly fine with the base of the plant actually in the water as they absolutely love being in the pond with my fish!

This fella absolutely loves my pond. So much that in just 2 years he is about 10 times the original size at least!! This is one of the many clumps I broke him a part to and I am really anxious to see the blooms this year!!
