I'm sure our iris aren't "thirsty"--even though we get NO natural rain
here in our part of California from April through October, we do a good
watering once a week during the digging season.  So they're definitely
not "thirsty".  Our iris field is basically semi-damp all summer.

So....they're probably doing so well for you because of all the TLC that
we give them and then obviously you've continued that care. :-)
