Beautiful plant but it does not grow well for me here in zone 6b.I have moved it to different locations but it still eventually dies out.

Lovely iris, but doesn't do well here. Each year it just deteriorates more. Maybe it grows better in another type of climate. I don't think it ever really acclimated here.
