Our season in Colorado sounds pretty similar to yours. I've noticed that
iris planted earlier tend to have a better chance to bloom the first year. I
always stipulate "earliest possible delivery" on my orders, and end up doing
a lot of planting before July 15.
We usually get only between 50 and 70 percent bloom the first season.
