Persian Berry stalk

marricgardensJune 17, 2011

When I bought PB the description said it was 36-40". I've had it 2 years and it has never been more than 2' tall. It's a beautiful iris but I wish it would get taller. Is there something wrong that it stays short? Marg

I don't think so. None of my irises achieve the height they are supposed to- the short ones get tall, the tall ones stay short- I have given up trying to figure out why. The measurements are taken by the hybridizer in the year the iris is introduced, so that means that's how tall it was that year in their garden in their zone.
