Re: Presby's Crown Jewel

   No, I'm not from Arizona (unfortunately wish I was, seeing all our 
horrible weather). I'm from NJ. It's growing at Presby Iris Gardens 
(NJ). Schreiner's named an iris for Presby, to commemorate their 75th 
anniversary. It was planted in 2001 so it would be in bloom last 
year. It was quite vigorous, and put off multi bloom stalks. This 
plicata to me has a very 'crisp' look (nicely defined markings, stiff 
flower). It is not the tallest TB in the world however, but sometimes 
first year plants behave that way. The bloom itself was a good size, 
and appeared to have a long bloom season. That last fact is very 
important to me (hey, any hybridizers listening?). Its far better to 
have an iris blooming for several weeks rather than an overloaded 
bloomstalk that so exhausts the poor thing, that you see it, then in 
about a week its done for the year.
