The WOI (thats World of Iris for those non abbreviation freaks) states
that I. Uniflora is a miniature variant of the species I. Ruthenica. 
This species comes from a cool Eurasian woodland and wants only to be
put where it will not bake, in almost any light soil that is not
alkaline.  There it will slowly make itself tufted green hummocks from
which in spring come quiet amethyst flowers on slim stalks.  The foilage
persists in low ground-covering effect until midautumn when it turns a
glowing golden brown, then goes dead to come afresh in the early days of
the new spring.
