In addition to labels, I have a map of where and what is planted.

One visit to a grower who was selling off unknowns because of a fierce winter wind blowing all his labels away convinced me. it's not that hard to do. If you have a bazillion irises, you just break the chore up into pieces and do one grid a week or month.

Also, there may be boys, like I was/am, who take sport in rearranging labels ;-)

But it is only 6" tall, not 11" as in the description. I do have a legend and "map" which should help. Any comments will be appreciated.
