I would love to try!

SDBs and miniatures do very well here - they are some of my most
prolific iris, and they are so darn cute. I've just started growing
some IBs, and have about 20 varieties of TBs. That's not a lot compared
to most people on this list, but for a mixed perennial garden on a city
lot, I think it's pretty good. I have iris in bloom from late April
through early July, and last Autumn I had my first rebloom - Queen
Dorothy and Baby Blessed. It was so exciting!

When I retire in a few years I may even try my hand at hybridizing for
fun. Need to learn lots more about the genetics, though.
