Planting Bearded Iris - Loop The Loop

I planted another variety of bearded iris today.  I received 100 rhizomes, but only was able to plant 42 before I ran out of space on that row.  I will have to prepare another row over the next couple days.  They are size 2 or 3 rhizomes which means they are small and probably will not bloom next year.   I may have some for sale next fall - depending on how fast they grow.  It doesn't freeze here in southern california so they have winter to grow.
Here is a stock picture of this variety in bloom.  The petals and falls are bright white that are edged in a very nice bluish purple.
