Re: HYB: daylength vs temperature & bloom initiation

My remark - ... "there is a poor correlation between survivability of plants

favorable conditions.  Otherwise, germinate seed under the best possible 
conditions and have more to plants to select from later"  was solely 
directed to vegetatively propagated plants.  Sorry for the confusion and 
thanks for helping me clarify my statements.

There are other variables that come into play when germinating seed for a 
vegetatively propagated plant that have no bearing on subsequent plant 
performance and quality.  It would be a mistake to attempt to screen for 
such characteristics by imposing stresses on the germinating seeds.

Good luck in your efforts on developing evergreen irises!  By the way do 
you have any of your new beans I could try in our area.  We have a about 
90 day frost free period. It has been known to freeze every month.
