[PHOTO] Re: JI: Blushing Snowmaiden

Thank you Judy!
Almost all of them are second year clumps. (attached is a clumpshot of 
IPSUS to give you a little better idea of the size).

But I am holding out on all you guys...<sorry_smile>
Some of my best shots of individual JI's I am keeping for the region 4 
JI photo contest so I won't be posting them yet. But there's still a 
bunch more to catch up on. Then there were some JI bed shots that I just 
sent in for the SJI photo contest. This is a lot of fun but keeps me busy!

As far as the decline problem, I found at my last house that it was not 
a straightforward problem. While many clumps did seem to decline after 
the 4th year or so, some didn't. At my current house (been here only 2 
years as you could probably guess) has an interesting environment. Most 
of my JIs are planted in my back yard which inclines down to a large 
pond. I water heavily in the spring and bloom time and can't wait to see 
if this  setup has an impact on the decline. It will be a while till I 
can report any more info...
