I planted Iris Standing Proud Fall 2020. The rhizome arrived in excellent condition. The rhizomes I received from Holland Bulb Farms are by far the best bare root Iris rhizomes I have received. They are substantial size, and the rhizome is firm. The rhizome did not rot out over winter. The Iris did not bloom this season, however there is nice growth. I look forward to seeing the bloom next spring.
