What area are you from Margaret?  I am in TN and the increase and new leaves are a little slower than some of the others, but seem comparable and not terribly slow.  It only is showing 4 increase right now and I planted it in Aug of last year.  I have others that are Blacks, Kerr and Innerst that are showing about the same level of growth.  So it doesn't seem terribly behind?  That is good info to have though.  Our winters are very mild here for the most part.  We usually have 2 good freezes a year and rarely stay in that temperature range for more than one night!  It is not the best condition for spring bulbs, but it tends to be a good range for iris!

Margie!  Thank you so much for sharing that photo.  I bought Expose last year....just couldn't pass it up, despite my wallet telling me to wait!  I am so excited to have it bloom now!  (it was worth not eating for a week...LOL)  It is truly gorgeous!  Have a great day!
Thank you Linda.  I find that Expose' is a bit harder to grow, but it's still plugging along.  Sometimes I find that it takes a couple of years before some of Ghio's irises will catch on and really get going.  I'm hoping this one will.  :-)
