I love this thing!!! It's beautiful, but I don't want to buy it if it isn't a good plant. What are your experiences?

RE: Does anyone have FORETELL siberian iris?

FORETELL McGarvey, Dr. William G. Reg. 1969 Sdlg 68 SIB 40 X 28 Chromosome Cross (32" 81 cm) E-M S. light blue with
styles about same color; F. yellow stitched with blue lines extending from hafts over most of length of F., yellow color
deepens as it approaches haft. Fertile with the 28 chromosome Siberians. /. forrestii clone 2 X (White Swirl x (Gatineau x
Caesar's Brother)). Old Brook Gardens 1970

As you will see above Foretell is a species cross but I find in New Zealand it needs Spring moisture up to and including flowering and the water kept up to it during the entire first season whilst it gets itself established but will tolerate moderate summer drought when established.Grows well
