On Gardening: Dutch iris, a showy, camera-ready bloomer

The word on the street (I've always wanted to say that) is that the Dutch iris is a short-lived perennial. Tell that to Romano an incredible showy bloomer that we have in the garden which was planted in the late 1990's. I've led a life comparable to a house flipper so my personal experience on the longevity of perennials has been word of mouth or reference book to say the least, but it seems to me anything approaching 20 years would rate as awesome.
