From Ted Havelka, 2013: Tom Craig's Engraved is proving to be a good iris growing in the north Willamette Valley of Oregon, USA. After planting in ground April 2012, three tiny leaf fans in a four inch pot in one year have increased to a dozen fans and three flower stems as of this writing. Stems show good branching, and four or five buds per stem. There are three branches with a flower each, and one or two terminal buds. Flower duration is proving to be three to five days, even across multiple days of full sun and temperatures between 27 and 29 C. Bloom sequence is good, what little there is of two or more buds at a stem end point. Foliage has shown itself largely healthy, in a part of our state where our irises can suffer more leaf spot than average, due to longer rainy spells. Leaves are more narrow than most tall bearded class iris. Rhizomes appear to spread out very slowly, with fans already crowded this May 2013. Probably will need to divide Engraved every other year, to keep it growing as strong. Unsure of pollen or pod fertility, but can see ample healthy looking pollen on all the flowers so far this year.
