I am not sure if Dallas, TX qualifies as hot and humid for you, (it does for
me) but Tom Greaves is in that area.  So everything he is posting could be
of interest to you.  Flanagan hybridized AB irises in that area as well so
his things might be interesting as well.

Thanks for this list, Christy.  I wonder if there's anyone from the "slough
of despond" or anywhere else in hot and humid zone 7 who can tell us of ABs
and OGBs that do well here?  My only personal experience was with growing
JEWEL OF OMAR for several years (in especially sandy soil).  It did well,
but I could never get a pod with seeds from crossing with TBs, so gave it
away.  --  Griff
