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

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
