I grew Twist of Fate for a few years and dearly loved it for it's deep
dark, highly saturated colors.  But alas it turned out to be a very poor
grower for me both here and my former home in Arizona.  Other people
also mentioned to me that they have trouble with it.  There are many
other neglectas (this is what they call it's pattern, unless you already
knew that and I apologize) and you may be wise to try them.  Most
however are not quite as dark as Twist of Fate.  Some that come to mind
are Color Coded, Nordic Seas and Overnight Sensation.  Fred Kerr of
Rainbow Iris Gardens has a 1996 introduction with Twist of Fate as a
parent.  It is called Fatal Attraction.  Cannot comment on how it grows
as I just planted it last summer.
