First year in my yard. No information yet on vigor, etc. Is planted in clay soil with a LOT of 2-3 inch rocks (think a previous owner many years ago had put in a parking pad there)

How is Impressionist doing for you this year? Vigorous or not? Good bud count?

Not well, got some rot in the center of the rhizome--a first for any Iris ever in my yard. Not much increase, either. Both of which may have to do with where it was planted. I split it to send to two new homes to see if they have better success with it and put something else in it's place.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
