You know, Bill, it just could be that the vogue disfavoring irises with branches emanating from low down on the main stalk has to do not with their appearance in the garden, but with the difficulty of exhibiting them at shows.  If you've tried it, you know that the standard "pipes" used in so many places won't work, and neither will the narrow vases used most other places.  When a container wide enough is found, it's still very difficult to arrange the flower so that its garden grace is replicated on the show bench.  If someone finds a way to do that, please tell me.  I'll bring a couple of those troublesome critters to the show.  --  Griff

Subject: [iris-photos] REB: Dime Spot stalk

Dime Spot TB (Moores 1984)
This photo is from a few days back. DS is now showing color. This is a single stalk. The bud cout is nine or more though all do not show in the photo. Contrary to current vogue I find myself wishing for more irises having branchs that eminate from points low on the stalk. I do not often stick my irises in a pipe but look at them each day.
