I don't know what my problem is with making this plant grow but I have difficulty with it in the same bed where other iris (Classic Bordeaux, Buffer Zone) flourish. For me it it quite a shy bloomer, yet I notice that people in colder climates than mine have had success with it. I suspect that Michigan's winter, with its constant freeze/thaw cycles stresses it more than it would like.
