I grew this iris in Austin, TX (zone 8 b) for about 15 years. It multiplied vigorously and rebloomed every year. It usually first bloomed throughout April and May and then started reblooming again in late October and November. I only brought one plant with me to Houston because I don't know how well it will tolerate the higher humidity and rainfall. I will post a report about that, in the future.

Hi,

How has this Iris done in Houston so far?

I kept it in a pot all last summer and finally planted it in a raised garden bed with somewhat sandy soil around mid-September. I mulched it with decomposed granite. It was one rhizome with a fan on each side. Both fans bloomed in December. As of today, the original fans look good and two more small fans have emerged. I'm pleased, so far, with how it's done. Thanks for asking! This picture was taken on 12/15/15.
