Also sold as "Iris latifolia." This crazy plant sends up its new foliage in October and November, and the leaf-tips are inevitably damaged by the cold.

I planted them in 2000 and enjoyed them for 5 years; then they stopped blooming, even though some still produce foliage. It might be my clay soil or the lack of nitrogen or potash.

UPDATE: 2010In 2009 and 2010, they came back in one area with a vengeance, probably because of the wet, cool springs.
