I'm glad you've though of them, so many people plant to attract the bees and butterflies, most of the eating is done by the larvae.

Don't forget the moths.

There are many more species moths than butterflies.I'll see if I can find a list of food plants

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

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.

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

They are hardy. In the ground they increase slowly.
