Irs showing new leaves already!

Hi, my iris, which I was going to move from a pot to the garden, already has new leaves sprouting!  Can I move it, or should I wait until the leaves have died back next year?

Thanks.

    If it's in a pot, it can be planted at any time unless the ground's unsuitable.  Of course, I'm assuming it's the summer flowering, bigger, bearded type and not a flag or Sibirica, in which case it won't mind being waterlogged! Soggy ground won't suit the former. 

    If it's a small or young plant, I'd leave it till spring, when it'll be a stronger plant. Just keep it in a sheltered spot to overwinter if that's the case. image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
