We planted this iris on the far side of our storage shed along with some cannas which KA gave us and we more or less forgot about that side of the shed this spring. Then one day I noticed something blooming over there and went over to take a look and voila! -- there it was--pretty little thing among the weeds. The weeds are now gone.
