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.
