I was being goofy when I named this Iris. Both this Iris and 'Billowy Violet,' which are sibs, clump up fast. Now that can be a good thing, or perhaps not. When an Iris increases *very* quickly, it can also cause small rhizomes with rhizomes upon rhizome and this can decrease flower production in certain Iris varieties; causing one to have to thin the clump for better bloom.

Because this Iris began its life like its sib (sib = Sibling), there is a possibility that it will perform well in poor dry conditions close to a tree line with only afternoon sun.

After seeing another posted photo of this Iris, I'm disappointed. I probably wouldn't purchase the Iris myself.
However, my recommendation is to grow this particular Iris in **low fertility dry soil** (like close to a tree line). That's where the seedling started, and that's where I think it will perform the best. Its maiden blooms look much better than later blooms after being moved. But it suffered in its first location for several years before I finally got it moved. It looks okay at the new lot, where soil is/was fresh and more fertile, but not as good as maiden blooms.

Three suppliers all gave Mme. Henri Cayeux instead of the correct one. Seems to be among the lost varieties.
