I've grown them for 3 years now (bloomed this year & last) in my garden in 
Cincinnati Ohio.  I don't do anything special.  It is in regular garden 
soil, and it gets no special water in the summer.  In midafternoon the 
clump is under the shade of a very tall maple tree.

However, I must say that they are not particularly thriving.  They do grow 
& bloom, but compared to my other irises (regular bearded kind) they show 
very little sign of increasing from year to year.
