Yes, I either transplanted or purchased and planted every iris on my farm just 
last year (with the exception of a couple of unknowns mixed in with the 
perennial border).

I don't know what to expect from JAN ELIZABETH next year, but I'm very 
worried about her because she has only put on a single increase since I 
planted her a year ago.  She did make it through a particularly severe winter 
this first year, so I know she's tough.  I'm just worried about her lack of vigor.  I 
wouldn't mind a bit not to see bloom on her next year if she would just turn her 
energy toward growing increases instead.  

I have heard that pinks can be more difficult than other colors here in the frigid 
north, but the only pink I've had a significant problem with so far is BEVERLY 
SILLS.  I tend to have more problems with bright oranges.  Both 
OKTOBERFEST and ROBUSTO rotted out on me before I ever saw them
