One of the better growing plants that holds up in even the hottest weather. Makes a nice clump quickly. I've never had problems with the stalks falling over..............even in high winds and rain storms. Very showy!!

I bought one of this iris and the plant gave me 5 or 6 flowers on the same stem this late spring. The flowers were huge and incredibly beautiful with the yellow and burgundy skirt.

Maybe the soil was too rich, the flowers were so big that they need stalking. Couldn't stay straight. The plant have only afternoon sun even if facing south.
