They do seem to do well together! And even when a volunteer columbine is growing right on top of an iris, they don't really seem to interfere with one another.

Me too. My iris hill always look a little bare with the fans only. But I have been fearful of planting anything else for fear of blocking sun or overpowering the iris. But columbine have their 'clump' at the base and then tall airy stems with flowers. perfect. Thanks bunches for a great idea.
