Stunted iris blooms, continued (pic)

hosenemesis(SoCal Sunset 19 USDA 8b)May 18, 2009

Hi all,

We were talking about stunted and strange iris growth in another thread, and I got a photo today of the phenomenon in my Ecstatic Echo plant. This has also happened to a division of the plant I gave to my mom last year, so it's not Roundup (which I haven't used anyway). Cajun Rhythm is right next to this iris, and blooms just fine. Any suggestions?

I have been reading about Ecstatic Echo, and people report trouble with it in hot climates. I know thrips do damage like this too, but I don't see other signs of thrips.

Since we both live in California in hot areas, perhaps its the heat that is doing this.
