I have to question your comment about the soil type for irises. I
have solid clay and while it may have taken a couple more years for
the isires to settle in, they bloom like crazy and have to be thinned
every 3 -4 years. Nor have I amended the soil, except for a small
amount of peat (a 3 sq ft bag dug into a 8 ft by 4 ft plot).
I thin them when the weather starts to cool back down, and have
thinned as late as Thanksgiving (which is 50 degree weather here).

They would still do much better in a loamy soil. Loam is also much better
for you to work than clay because it isn't hard when dry nor sticky when
Coir is a better choice as a soil additive than peat because it does not
require destroying the few remaining peat bogs to produce it.
