Iris unguicularis

Has anyone seen data which gives the number of blooms produced by a clump
(technical term, right?) of Iris unguicularis during its blooming season? 

I have not counted mine yet, but last year it must have produced at least
two dozen flowers spread out over a period of a bit more than four months. 

I was not keeping track of this earlier, but on the basis of what I remember
my plant has so produced about twelve flowers since it started in November. 

It keeps pumping out the flowers! 

Its relative Iris lazica, which enjoys a cushier life in the protected cold
frame, has yet to bloom here (ever).
