This year it was especially good when so many things were especially bad. Bud count, which often is lacking, was fairly good. And, of course, it is a beautiful bloom. Quite short.

Spiritual Corridor does have a beautiful bloom, it did bloom more for me last year then this year but it is always a welcome sight
in the garden.

I used to have it many years ago. It does have a beautiful bloom, but I got rid of the plant because (as MantisOH mentioned) it was short, and the bud count wasn't all that good (and it is not a rebloomer).
Evaluating an iris seedling, hopefully for rebloom

Spiritual Corridor has been a rapid increaser compared to others, it's a 3yo clump and its a huge clump! Bud count has been great since I've had it. It was FULL of blooms this year, it has just finished blooming. I have it in full afternoon sun.
A True gardener will purchase a thousand plants before thinking of where to put them :P

This plant did well for me the last two years, multiplying each year and producing beautiful blooms. This year I had a sprinkler malfunction in that bed, and almost lost several cultivars, including this one. It is now recovering nicely and I expect to see it back on track next year. In my garden, it was right on as far as the stats go. It is very pod and pollen fertile.

Although marked as a 3.0 for rust susceptibility, it has done very well here over the last month that rust has been an issue. I have pulled a few leaves, but nothing major, and the plant is not heavily affected. I will try to get a picture soon for the database (to show rust resistance-susceptibility) if I get a chance between storms in this welcome rainy weather.

I installed Spiritual Corridor in May of 2021 on Back Daylily Hill, by the path. I had 5 charming blooms, starting on July 24th and I would have had a bunch more but they were eaten by a stray marauding deer.

2022…ever since the deer ate it, SC has been struggling. I got no bloom this summer and by October, I was down to one fan. I'm afraid that by Spring, this plant will be seeing its own Spiritual Corridor! Hilarious! Hilarious!
