, Thanks for your kind comments.
I purchased this gorgeous Japanese Iris six years ago, and have been thrilled with its spectacular blossoms. It would probably prefer more moisture, but has done well in a slightly sheltered spot in the garden. We do get horrendous winds and lots of sun in the summer, but, all in all, it seems to handle it okay.
I notice you are both in the 5b Zone as well, so give it a try. I took a quick peek at your long list of Landscape Photos, Paul, and was amazed! You have a Grand Photo exhibit right there! Such lush and lovely, colourful compositions. Thank you so much for sharing them with us!
