Hereford, United Kingdom
On Friday I noticed that one of the tall flower stems on my bearded irises had fallen over. I didn't have a chance to go and pick it up until today. I found that the base of the stem was all mushy, the leaves were mottled and the rhizome was also mushy were the growth had broken off. A neighbouring stem has the same mottling on the leaves, but seems firmly attached. I'm hoping this is just the result of a cat or pigeon doing a belly-flop on the plant, but could it be something more sinister?
