I wanted the "worst case conditions" for the experiment, and I sure got 'em! I planted them in sand, and then sort of forgot them, so next year, there will be a "repeat", in better soil, and better care. I am expecting growth from these this fall, when more moisture is available. The soil these are in is nearly pure sand, and even the weeds struggle to survive. I will say they the few SIBs I planted there are growing like weeds, but, they are pretty well mulched in with pine straw, and had large root systems when they were planted. I would say if you've got some side growth, the battle is won! No doubt the iris was "set back", and may not have large enough increases to bloom next year, but, if it lives, bloom WILL come!...Arlyn
