got two rhizomes of something, but it was too exciting....didn't register in the brain, gotta go out to check which one? capt. thunderbolt!
i'll plant one in the front the other in back. i have a 10 - 15 deg. swing in front or in back. front can be that much colder all times of the year.
back is sw facing, front is ne facing. the irises in the front have done much better in the ground. the back ones in the ground....mehh. i also have probs w/gophers [edited to add: in the backyard], and so far the cottontails in the front have not discovered the irises. so far, they've[ edited: the bunnies] eaten my [crystal palace]lobelia to nubs.
but the irises in pots have bloomed their heads off. (mind you, that may only be one stalk, but i have seen bloom
, and they're not clumps, yet. hopefully next year)
