Re: CULT:speaking of leaf spot


I plant tons of Moss Roses in my Iris beds.  No problem with the Iris, in
fact they grow better, and I think it may be because the Moss Rose leaves
give just a little shade but not so much and to hide the Rhizome.  Might
make the Rhizome just a tad cooler?  My Iris do better when I plant the bed
full of Moss Roses and the more the merrier.

See picture if I posted it.
