Three years ago I dug up the Iris due to an infestation of Iris borers, cut off the dead parts, washed them and transplanted them with much more space compared how crowded they were when I started. The pinks were already there and I brought in the purples to tone them down given how I feel about pink flowers. They did not bloom that much the next year and after a little research I learned that it takes them a while to get back to their full glory after being moved.
I rely on my old Toronto neighbours to keep me up to date on how my old garden is progressing and thankfully they have shared this photo with me that clearly demonstrates that I just needed to be patient. The Iris are back and better than ever before.
Much better in fact.
