El, In my Zone 6 garden, I can usually get a good percent of 2nd year bloom on seedlings I plant before July 1.  If I plant on/after Sept 1, I get no 2nd year bloom. 
Griff, do you have similar results?

Thanks, El  --  No, the seeds are simply planted in pots outdoors in October.  In my climate, from seed to flower in 3 years is average.  In a good year, I get lots of flowering on 2d year plants.  Last year was a good year.  This year is average.  --  Griff

Very nice, Griff.  Did you do something special to get from seed to flower in 3 yrs?

At the Oklahoma City convention in 2007, I pointed out my Lavender Interlude to Fred Kerr and asked his advice about what to do with it, since it was, in my opinion, a good iris, but the flower form was, by then, dated.  His answer: "What are your goals?"  After thinking about it, I decided that it needed a really strong dose of ruffles, so I crossed it with Keith Keppel's Sea Power.  Here are Lavender Interlude and two photos of a resulting seedling, 08322.  The second shot of 08322 is to better show the silver/cream flush in the standards that matches the edge of the falls. --  Griff
