Fancy Tales is one of my favorite Iris.  I tend to go for the more vividly 
outrageous colored Iris.  Unfortunately although georgeous it is not a 
particularly vigorous grower. In fact it is a very poor grower & bloomer. I 
have been babying mine for three years now and the plant has only sent out one 
extension. The first year it had no blooms the second year only one which my 
cat broke off and this last year it had one stalk with four buds, one of which 
opened and then the stalk rotted below the other buds. This fall I moved it to 
the dryest sunnyest spot in my garden. Hopefully this will help it. 

I am trying to breed it with a more vigorous grower yet still keep its 
coloring. I crossed it with Let's Dance this year but the pod got broken off 
before it had matured. I'll try again next year.
