Thanks Bill, that's all I needed to hear.
(It's now on my wish list.)

Bill, another breath-taking photo! How does Broken Dreams
grow for you?
First planted in Aug. 2000 increase was adequate as it
usually is with the first year "bump" characteristic of Keppel supplied
rhizomes . It contracted minor rot the second year 2001 and increase was nil.
No action was taken to cure. It came on strong in 2002 with an increase of 7x
which is above average for here. Recommended as a good iris
Interestingly, I did not know it was a broken color plant when I
acquired it and it did not bloom with any broken color the first year. Bloomed
solid. I thought what a great pink iris. I preferred it to Happenstance
acquired at the same time. I recall
"what kind of dreams could a person have that prompts him to name such a grand
flower broken?" God watches out for us dumb. I like this iris and it's habits
