The Zandria I got was a very small rhizome that took 2 years to bloom and it had only one flower, the following year it had many flowers, I must say in comparing to some of my other irises, this iris is slower in spreading but it blooms every year, where some of my faster growers do not. I used Triple Phos in fall and again in spring before bloom and the color is more intense, a very beautiful flower.
My only problem with this iris has been with deer

I've grown this one for several years now, and it's a slower growing iris for me here in Southwest Arizona. Needs a lot of attention to keep it going. Steady but slow. Lovely coloring on this iris!

I had read on another listserv that Zandria was a difficult grower. I did not find this to be the case at all. The nursery sent me two rhizomes (saying that they were both smallish--though they were reasonably good size). Both plants bloomed this, the first, year--one plant put up three separate stalks, the only one of my first year irises to do this. Between the two plants, there were about 25-30 beautiful flowers. The standards are a clear, uniform pink. Beautiful contrast!

Zandria was the last iris to bloom in my Zone 8 garden.
