This is going to be a poor year for buds here also.I am pretty certain that Eagle's Flight had triple socketed buds on the terminal last year. This year it has double. Some of my other iris are sporting 3-5 buds where normally they have a lot more. I think it may have been the drought that caused this. It should be interesting to see if later blooming ones have a more normal bud count, then I will know it was the late freeze. I actually had a stalk come up with no terminal buds and one where there should be a branch. No other bloom stalks on this clump. It did not bloom last year either. I hope things will be closer to normal next year.

Thanks Wendy. Fun stuff (irrespective of the education value) for me too.
About the triple socket stuff, they were rare here this year. Even the
venerable Lemon Chess, while producing triples pretty much routinely on the
terminal end of the main stalk, only managed to do so on about every other
stalk on lateral branches. It's still in bloom though and remains the
bloom/bud producing standard to which I campare all others. Too, it's a
competitor in the Last Man Standing competition here.

Do keep the triple socket thread on a front burner. Input of great value to
