Which irises do not grow or bloom for you?
I was just thinking about the irises I have purchased that do not do well in Southern California. I know they do well in Minnesota, or Utah, but that doesn't help me. So here are some that I cannot grow or that do not bloom for me.
Starship Enterprise. One flower stalk with two flowers over the last eight years; no increase at all. I just gave it away.
Impressionist. Nada. No increase at all either.
Queen's Circle. Bloomed once and died.
Ringo. Very fussy. Small rhizomes, few flowers on the stalk that fry in the heat. Rarely blooms.
Ecstatic Echo. My favorite iris. It just kept growing all wiggly on the ground and getting accordion leaves. The stalks had very few flowers. My mom tried it with the same results.
Every Standard Dwarf and Intermediate Bearded I have tried. They lived, but no flowers.
How about you?
