Aussie iris often do this first year. They can't figure out which end is up.
Laughin' cause Aussie irises sound real Southern to me.
I once tried to convince local powers we should order some Aussie irises and plant for a fall regional here and auction them in bloom. I did not get very far with that suggestion. Seems folks wanted to do the same thing every year cause doin' so had worked just fine. For me that's just a way of actin' tired while I'm gettin' old. As best I remember that comment wasn't well received either. <laughin' harder> Thinkin' it might be better received in Australia.
