I grew this for two years and each year it bloomed profusely during June
in my climate. I remember it was very shy on increase and tried to
bloomout, doing so in the second year. It just dried up and died like a
biennial. I liked it quite a bit as it developed a tall spike with
small iris like flowers that seemed to bloom forever. The World of Iris
mentions that it self seeds but I never saw any in the two years I had
I'm not sure of the PH of the soil where it was grown, but daylilies,
roses and lilies were grown nearby.
Hope this helps.
