Neutral TBGDN On Jun 7, 2009, TBGDN from Macy, IN wrote:

I'm not very fond of this iris. I keep it as a bit of iris history and for a personal record. It is not a reliable bloomer here; and cold winters and late spring freezes will hinder bloom.

This plant has been an unreliable bloomer and slow to multiply for me.
