In my opinion many irises just grow better in
Oregon. In our own individual home gardens a lot of it probably has to do
with "location. location. location". Also there are some irises
hybridized/or bred in Oregon that just will not grow well this far south.
In that case there is not too much we can do about it. It is a lovely iris for

Your photo of ?Fit
For A King? Iris does NOT have the lighter rim on the outside of the falls

Fit for a King did bloom for me
last year, but not very well. I'm hoping it will do better this
The thing was it bloomed really
late. These photos were taken in late May.
And it being that time of year, got
a little back spray from the sprinklers that we turn on some by that
time of year.
This year I'm going to try to be
more cautious about that, especially for these darker
It really puts too many spots
etc. Then if it gets healthy, I'm going to move it.
What I liked about Fit for a King
was it's beard. And overall shape.
