I don't know, Dave.  I often don't get bloom for a couple years on new 
transplants, either - assuming they even survive that long in my 
climate.  What really gets my goat is when I share an iris that's been 
sulking doing absolutely nothing in my garden for 3 yrs with a local 
friend, and the doggone plant blooms the very next spring for the 
friend and STILL doesn't bloom for me!  Grrrrr!
