I received a rhizome 11-18-16 in a trade from Cindy in MI as part of a new bed I was making for Irises. I worked on getting the soil just right with a little sand for the best drainage & ph since it was my 1st try at Tall Bearded Irises here in zone 9. I understood they can take a year or 2 to get established in new surroundings. Late Spring 2018 I found a bud & after a week found a full blooming flower. That was it, so I'm hopeful for more this year 2019. The plant has grown a little with several new fans.
