Re: PCN:seedling

Being very technical, I would agree that Bill will not be able to grow PCNs (Pacific Coast Native). Over time lots of people have tried but none successfully. However I have been told by a reliable source, that PCI (Pacific Coast Iris) are being successfully grown in areas that were previously considered impossible. As a matter of fact, that situation applies to me. PCIs are hybrids between different PCN species and then hybrids of hybrids. Unfortunately knowledge of what hybrids or other details of how they were being grown in the formerly considered impossible areas was not part of the communication.
If you are really interested in growing PCIs, start acquiring seed from Joe Ghio and anyone else that will save seed for you. If you get some survivors, hybridize wiith them. Then introduce the survivors and write an article giving the details about your success.

I'd appreciate any comments as I'm considering registering it

I have zero knowledge of PCN's and am not qualified to comment on your seedlings merits. Others tell me I cannot grow them in my climate. I like the diversity and intricacies of the blooms I see posted. What are the currently accepted ideal conditions for growing PCN's? Of which adverse growing conditions are they least tolerant? Are some varieties more tolerant of these adverse conditions?

Wonderin' some if "cannot" means "not impossible",
