Gardeners' Notes:

I have never seen an Iris so succeptable to crown rot and fungul disease as Fall Fiesta. They are very un-hardy, But, if you can get them to thrive and not rot, they are truely one of the most beautiful 2 tone white and coppery fall orange color TB iris available. As long as I can keep these bulbs alive, Fall Fiesta will always have a place in my TB iris Garden. Sandra.

Beautiful blooms during its first year. It was one of the last to bloom.
