Totally_Amazing said:I would like the individual blooms to last longer, stronger stems that don't fall over in the wind and something that makes them unattractive to animals that destroy them.
AndreaD said:The newer irises have much improved substance. Check out those with Haunted Heart in their pedigree, for instance.

I thought irises bloomed every year so why do some only bloom every three years?
TBipp said:One disappointment with irises is that only about 50% bloom a year after planting. It is discouraging to wait two years after buying and planting to see a bloom. It also makes it more difficult to attract newbies to irises when many perennials bloom the year they are planted while the vast majority bloom a year later.
More fragrant irises would be nice.
