<< As some of you may remember, last year I purchased some Iris setosa seeds
 from Wal-Mart, and managed to get 2 seedlings from that.  They are now
 about 12 months old, and each has formed a nice mini-clump.  I'm not sure
 if they will bloom this year because they seem quite small (<8" tall). >>

Dennis, depending upon what they sold you as I. setosa they may not get much 
larger than that.  If you have the Canadaian form, now called I. hookeri it 
should be about eight inches tall and bloom a bit taller and above the 
foliage. Based on my experience you will get bloom in the third year. Others 
may have had different experiences, but none of my setosas have bloomed the 
second year.
