<,Is there a PH difference or other significant soil difference between Alvaton and where you now are?>
Griff, I can't speak to the subject with any authority since I didn't do a test for PH at Alvaton.  At one point I planted part of a row with irises I'd bought to replace the ones I'd lost.  Ruffled Ballet comes to mind, but there were others.  I placed approximately half a cup of pelletized lime in the bottom of each hole and stirred it in before I planted the irises.  They lived.  I'd read somewhere that the acidity was probably the reason for my losses.  Not Innerst specifically. 
Since I've moved here I did put lime in all the planting holes or side dressed with it.  Early this spring I top dressed with lime.  I feel relatively sure this is the difference.  The county agent said all the soil in my county is acid, but I can't remember the exact ph.  This was an old feed lot/pasture and that assures it was even higher. 
I don't usually lime in the fall but may this year so it can soak in with the winter rains and fall through the cracks with the freeze and thaw. 
Right now I have to find a spot to over winter 110 mum pots!!
