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
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 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
