Slpashacata is doing well for me - - so far.
I've had it for 2 years now. It's increased well and the blooms have been
spectacular usually with 3 flowers opened at once on a stalk. I
wonder if you just ended up with a bum rhizome.
What I do sometimes is order 2 of the same rhizome
from different places. And - - it DOES make a
difference! With each rhizome planted toe to toe - - quite often - - I'll
find one rhizome grows well and flourishes while the other
struggles. I think many times - - it all depends on how the
irises are fed and cared for before you receive them.
