Japanese roof ‘iris cruella’

Another problem is these iris (tectorum variegata) cruella I planted out last year. 
They are in well draining soil, autumn winter partial shade due to lower sun and summer mostly full sun. They took a battering this winter and look rather sorry for themselves now. Any tips to get them back to health. Thank you In Advance.

    I have one of these and suggest you cut the dead growth off and use some twiggy sticks as stakes to hold them upright. That's what I did with mine but only had them since last summer so can't tell you any more than that. 
  • Thanks Angelicant. I’ll give it a go 🤞

    as no one answered I’ve cut one right back and the other stripped the dead leaves etc as above message but it doesn’t look like it’ll come again. Oh well, time will tell 😌
