I have to disagree, Laetitia.  My experience with these iris (which usually
comes from Home Depot, not Wal Mart) has not been good.  I bought a bunch of
these before I discovered Sutton's great irises that always grow and bloom
and don't cost any more.  I haven't gone back.  But five years ago, not
knowing how unreliable they are, I bought a bunch.  Over half didn't make
it.  Those that did have been very reluctant bloomers.  In fact, I have been
thinking about taking them all out and replacing with more reliable
bloomers.  Perhaps just my experience, but not like yours at all.  I would
be happy if they had been strong.
