I was drawn to "Tangled Web" by its unusual beauty. Unfortunately, it hasn't performed too well here in coastal SC, Zone 8. It has been a very slow grower and produced just one stalk in three years.

Doesn't seem to like our soil or weather here;I moved it this fall to see if I could make it a happier camper :-)

Beautiful iris but doesn't like our zone 7B garden here in Texas. The iris never increased like it should have so finally I disposed of it this past year. I hope to find one that is much the same in looks, but more vigorous.
