area are you from? 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
Linda, I live in Arizona - where the state flower is the Saguaro
Flower. (a flower from a cactus). Tennessee's state flower
is well............... the Iris. Lucky you!
:-) And that may partly explain why irises can do better in
your state. Your state is one of the better states to grow irises
Our climate can be hard for some irises
(not all) to adapt and feel at home. I remember when I first
got Ghio's Puccini ................. For 3 years I
thought I was going to lose it, then all of the sudden it took
off. It's been a great grower ever since! And so I'm
hoping the same for Expose'.
Thanks for asking. That was a good question.
