Season Bloom Summary

I finally got around to counting things iris that bloomed this last spring. 
Everything in my garden this year (i.e., planted last Aug) was a dig/ separate/ and 
replant or add new from other sources. I got about 50% bloom rate. A little 
disapointing, but then a majority of them were from clumps at least three years old 
that my wife had planted. (I don't think she knew about separating them.) The new 
cultivars from Maryott's only had a 66% bloom rate. The other side of that is that 
none of the plantings died (even the smallest toes I planted).

Maybe my expectations were too high.
