Hello Bill,

My own experiences with Riverview have been satisfactory.  With 
their huge selection, I still am inclined to think they are great 
resource in the iris world.

Boy, I can identify with that.  Even when I have the opportunity 
with the beds strung by the barbed wire fence, the plantings don't 
end up in rows.  Those beds carved out between the rock outcroppings 
are something else again.  I'd intended them to work a lot like a 
patch-work quilt, but naturally tried to get more varieties than 
there was space between the rocks and ended up with too small 
patches for the quilt.  Even where I've corrected that mistake, it's 
hard to draw in the patches and leave enough room between the 
different cultivars.
