Hello, Jack,


My soil is all heavy clay.  The irises are planted on ridges so that the irrigation water doesn’t stand on them.  This bed is in an old orchard that has grown nothing but wild oats that have been plowed back into the ground for many years.  I put no other amendments on it.  Most of the irises seem to grow well there.

Pardon my ignorance, but the soil in this picture looks
like very dry, cracked clay. I thought optimal bearded iris
health depended on good drainage. Am I missing something here
or is the drainage part overstated?

its form and colors. I only had five from that cross. One I did not
like, so its gone. Two didn’t bloom last spring, but since I want
to see them, they got moved away from their vigorous sibling. I hope
they bloom this spring.

Pod parents are Happenstance, Life of Riley, Pond Lily and Polish
Princess and only four seeds from Lady Friend. I feel that CoC passes
on its extravagant ruffles.
