Hello Thomas,
i can't believe this tiny crooked thing is the father of your beautiful Clown Pants!
Miracles happen, that's why one should never blindly obey advise saying things shouldn't be done!
Clown Pants is doing  quite fine here and surely should have  bloom on 3 stalks if it keeps growing that well. Considering the size it arrived last fall, it surely is a tough number!
Thanks a lot!

Iris suaveolens var. rubromarginata is the earliest
iris I have. It's just opened its first bloom along
with the forsythia and flowering cherry trees. I tried
to get my hand in the picture for size comparison. The
flower probably stands only about 3 or 4 inches tall
from the ground.

[note the reddish pigment along the margins of the
tiny curved leaves]

The second picture is an even worse quality close-up.
I hope you can at least see the form [extremely tucked
falls] and maybe the little blazes of bright purple
that extends down from the beards.
