I planted 3 rhizomes last summer and this week I have a dozen or more beautiful blooms. I have done nothing what-so-ever to this iris since planting it last year. I don't think I even watered it when I put it in the ground. In fact, it's a lot bigger/taller then what I thought it would be and will probably need to divide and move part of it to a second location this fall.
I am definately happy with this addition!

Absolutely loved this little iris. First year bloom was rather short but strong stems. Plenty of buds and after first flush of flowers, bloomed again two weeks later.
