Not a big bloom , but ruffled and has lots of blooms. It seems to grow normal for me in Nebraska.

Negative RobertWM On Sep 6, 2010, RobertWM from Clawson, MI wrote:

Said to be a prolific bloomer but I notice all the gardeners who say it grows for them live in Southern climates. Here in Michigan, where it has to deal with some actual weather, it is quite a poor grower and is prone to rot. I've had it for about five years, and it has bloomed TWICE, in that time. Each time, the flowers were tiny for a modern day iris and there were, count them, FOUR, blossoms on the one stalk it produced. Hardly abundant at all.
