TB: clump and stalk shots

Well Linda this is difficult here in " The Land Where Iris Grow" <G>
As you can see in the photo below 2 year clumps all grow together.
With 7 to 20 stalks in a clump bloom stalks are hard to separate.
I took the photo below for Walter Moores. From right to left front row:
A weed-Shore Patrol-Chocolate Chess-Violet Shimmer-Follow the Fleet- Color Fusion
The following week was prime week. The rows behind are MTBs and IBs.
All are two year clumps
I have quite a few clump shots of the IB's and MTB's with up to 50 fans
per clump.
These beds had awesome growth. I think ( not a fact) that whomever
fertilized the grass did the iris also. We also had way above average
rain those two years. As I remember we had about 4 times that we went
3 days with out rain. Also hot and humid. Lost one iris to rot the first year.
We had some rot when it was time to dig.
218 iris planted.
Three lost to rot
One stolen
One lost to scorch ( confirmed be Roy Eperson)
After shipping some back two heaping pickup loads were planted in
the dumpster.
Our iris club folded the year before the meeting. About 8 of the members
put it on because we had committed to do it. The original Chair's husband
had serious health problems. John Bruce took over.
 I was making crosses 7 days before the meeting. I had chest pains and
ended up having a stint put in the next day. I was making crosses the day
after that. They found I had a Abdominal Aorta Amorism when putting the
 stint in. I was not allowed to-do any heavy work till it was fixed. That was the
 end of July before I could. Went in the hospital Monday came home that night.
Went out to supper Wednesday night. So John and his wife dug 3 of the four beds.
I did some labeling.
Isn't modern medicine Great!!
