I would guess that reticulata cultivars show quite a wide range of 
behavior in cultivation, given that they're hybrids involving 
multiple species.  In the nursery here, straight Iris histrioides 
selections often seem to outperform reticulata cultivars.  All 
reticulata species and hybrids spend most of the year in Anderson 
flats (16x16 inch, 5.5-inch deep) in a coarse, mostly organic mix.
