LB blooms at 36" in height for me here in Missouri and must say is one 
gorgeous iris!!  Personally I love it more than SE which was introduced this 
year and got all the fanfare. Another Schreiner introductions I love is 
Brazilian Holiday. 

One thing I very seldom do to a first year bloom in my garden is check the 
coloration other than to make sure it's the correct iris. I never get upset 
if the bloom is dull because I know the bloom is not from my garden. I have 
had some blooms that really looked dull but the following year the bloom was 
absolutely gorgeous. This is something you beginners my want to make a note 
of because you are seeing the last bloom from the garden you bought or 
received the iris from. 
Does anyone else spinkle lime on their iris twice a year? I have gotten into 
the habit of doing so which seems to enhance the color. Someone mentioned I 
needed to watch my ph but our soil here in Missouri is natually acid so I 
don't think 3 - 4 years will change the ph all that much. I have to admit I 
do a lot of things that others think is weird but it's always worked for me 
so why should I change. My motto has always been if it works keep doing what 
your doing.
