How big is it, is it scented, do the leaves smell if you squeeze them, how many heads per stem and have you got a camera?

The branches will not regrow. I'd take the stumps off back to the trunk, and see what it looks like then

Repotting pond iris

janebal,  Do what you were originally going to do. If you find it doesn't work, do something else next year. There are no hard and fast rules, there are opinions, some more informed than others. A natural pond, where the irises naturally grow, has ordinary soil all around the edges and on the bottom. Natural ponds find a balance.

Do a bit of experimentation and  report back with your opinion.

Caltha palustris

I think they'll  all survive. My water level is variable. Right now some are fighting their way up to the surface from about a foot down. By August they'll be 3 foot above the water line but they'll be back next year

Fritillaria Crown Imperialis

They are hardy. In the ground they increase slowly.

boggy soil at the edge of the pond janebal. Mine are just above to just below the water.

Weed/plant identification and removal advice

I think the top one might be  wild cherry suckers.

Wind damage to Fritillaria

That's bad luck James, there's often a lot of wind when they flower I find. One of mine has a kink but they stood up to it well this year. You might as well cut off the part above the break now.

Weed or plant

If it has yellow flowers it might be one of the other mustard type of plant. It isn't coltsfoot which flowers before the leaves and is only just putting up the leaves.

But it still looks like Alliaria petiolata to me.
