It's not the form that turns people off, I think. It's not all that
strappy for its age, though it is very tailored. But the strange
creamy greenish shade with the big blotch of purplish mulberry aren't
colors that everyone takes to. It is also missing some substance,
especially on spring bloom. Seems to do better in the fall. That may
be because it's much less windy here in the fall. I like this sort of
coloring in combination with something really vivid, but generally I
think most any iris works with any other iris - with a couple of
exceptions. MOVE OVER and BATIK are not agreeable combos for many,
IMO. So perhaps the wider color patterns in medians make a
difference. Since they mostly don't grow well or survive here, it
limits trying.
