I bought three tubers of this little Iris about 8 years ago. I now have huge clumps of it. All I can say is it is hardy as heck and multiples quickly. It blooms like crazy, with little or no care. Wonderful bright yellow "pops" of color in my garden in early spring. Very prolific. If anyone cares to trade with me I would glady share for something different. :-) Easy no care plant.

Blooms early, lots of flowers on short spikes just above the leves. It multiplies rapidly, I divide the plants every 2 or 3 years and pass a lot of plants along to my co-workers.
