RE: OT: bio of Darm Crook

Welcome Darm,

I imagine that if you can grow hybrid tea and Austin roses way up there, you
should be able to grow most irises.  If you want to pick up some more iris
seed, you can get some from Gardens North.  http://gardensnorth.com/site/  I
gave them all our I. setosa and I. typhifolia seed.  Let me know if you want
me to collect seed for you.  Or if you want to try a few rhizomes for

Are the irises that you are growing bearded or beardless?

Ottawa, Ontario

  Hi Ellen :
  The Irises I have growing now I`m not sure what they
may be . They have been in my garden for a quit a few
years and when planted I wasn`t to concerned on what
they were named , thus I never recorded or marked them
as to their I.D.
 However this winter I got some seed for I. Siberica ,
I. Yellow Flag and I. Graminea . all species I believe
. I think with a little effort I should be able to
winter over a wide variety of irises as I have
succeeded wintering tea and David Austin roses for 5
winters now . If one can do them irises should be
relatively easy in comparison . I don`t consider a
plant to be successfully wintered over until it comes
back in the spring and blooms , if they don`t bloom
they haven`t wintered .
  Thank you for the info on the other two mailing
lists .
