I am finding that I have the most interest at the extremes of Irisdom -
the very tall and the very samll.
I was wondering if you could tell could tell me if you thought I.
Minutoaurea would grow in my climate considering that I never get much
cold weather (15-20 days at 28-30F - not all at the same time). I have I
Graminea blooming now and want to develop collection of tiny ones but
don't know if I.M. even has a hope of growing here. Most SDBs don't do
well for me, but I am hoping to find some species that might.
Would you have any other suggestions?
