My first yr w it also. I bought it at the Prescott iris sale last yr and it was in an area that didn't get much care. So I'd say it's doing very well considering where I stuck it. Not as many blooms as Jan but considering I barely got it planted in a very dry, no dirt area I'm amazed it lived.

I planted one rhizome last September. It is the one blooming now and there are 7 good sized increases coming off it. I am a very poor waterer and we only had 4-5" of rain this year, not our usual 13-15". Looks good to me.

Jan and Linda............. Heaven and Earth look heavenly. Thank you for posting those lovely pictures. What kind of increases does this variety give? Is it a strong grower?

This one is labeled Heaven and Earth but not sure.
Looked in AIS Files and there are 2 descriptions: the first w an #, so I think that means no longer in existence??

Does anyone else grow this one and have a pix to compare.
