Those smaller irises which I take to mean the Median classes
plus the Miniature Dwarf class, need a lot of room up here in
the north. 12 inches wide is not nearly enough for most of my
Medians. 'Some' of my SDBs make very large clumps after about 3
yrs. LIME SMOOTHY and WIZARD'S RETURN need as much room as any
TB here.  

I just went out and measured two beds that contain principally
Medians. Excluding the stone edging, there are both over 36
inches wide (one is 38 inches) wide. I am in the process of
dividing these two beds now.
