foetidissima is one of the few irises that will flower in full shade,
my variegated gets most of the afternoon sun (and flowers every year...
although many years I find that out afterwards when I notice the spent
Mine is in pretty dense shade on the east side of the house, where even
without a dense canopy of trees, it would only get a few hours of
morning sun. I made the mistake of letting some seedling American elms
stay where they sprouted, assuming Dutch elm disease would take them out
before they got to be a shade problem. The elms are approaching a foot
in diameter and are definitely providing more shade than I want. In
addition, a storm last year twisted a big limb partially off one of them
without killing it, and now that limb now droops down is draped over the
bed where this iris is blooming. Definitely dense shade.
