Hello and Intro

From: "Dan and Katherine Roberts" <dankat@mail.myriad.net>


	My name is Katherine, I live in Bryan, TX, zone 8, and I've been 
growing (trying) bearded irises for a couple of years.  I thought I'd sign on 
the list to learn more about how to grow and take care of irises.  I really 
love the big sohw blooms they have.  I've got questions though, so I hope 
someone doesn't mind answering them.

	First, two years ago, I bought some irises, name unknown.  I 
bought it in the spring right after it had bloomed, so it didn't bloom that 
year.  The next year (last year), a stalk grew up, and I had 4 beautiful 
blooms (white with a ruffled reddish purple edging).  This year when it 
bloomed, it was totally white.  What did I do wrong?  Is there any way to 
"fix" it?

Thanks for any replies, I'm looking forward to learning something,
Katherine Roberts
