When I was in Oregon in 2003, I saw the field clump
of this iris at Mid-America Gardens. No joking, it was like a mountain
standing in the middle of the field! Intimidator was easily 8
inches (22cm) higher than the average level of the field! I was so
happy to get it as a bonus that year!
Here in Michigan, my own specimen of
Intimidator did have a first year bloom. It was only 3 feet tall,
but in comparison to all the other first-year blooms in that bed, it was still
the tallest!! I can't wait to see how well it does this year. It
really is a tall iris, registered at 52" (132cm), and strong enough stalks
to withstand that tower of height!
