I bought Cranberry Ice about 3-4 years ago at Oak Ridge ??? in Steinbach... Bought about 5 or 6 and none of them made it... I did plant them quite late and it was one of "THOSE" winters so I really don't blame them... more my fault... Len

The real reasoning behind my confidence that my Cranberry Ice didn't look like the monitor picture was that I would still be growing it if it did. The photo on my  monitor is very nice. Two years ago, we had a cool, wet spring and the iris colors were much prettier than previous years.

>       I grew Cranberry Ice before the iris virus so I do not have a photo. If my memory can be trusted, my Cranberry Ice did not look like the image on my monitor. I do list Cranberry Ice in my catalog so I may get a chance to see it again next year. I remember it as a very slow increaser.
