elongated rhizomes

From: Chris Darlington <chris.darlington@sympatico.ca>

Hi folks,
Just a quick question:  I noticed that all of the unknown rhizomes that
were given to me by a friend last year from an unwanted patch were
fairly long and thin , some as least six inches long ! They look some
what like a pogo and are dark brown in color . Can one draw any
conclusions as to a vague possible identy or classification just by
observing the characteristics of a rhizome?  These iris have apparently
not bloomed in years.  One possibility which I considered was that maybe
they were in this condition due to being heaved out of their hard clay
bed year after year.  All I know is that they look profoundly different
to the other rhizomes that I have in my garden.  With any luck they'll
bloom in about a month or two.

I suppose we Canadians will be the last ones to submit our bloom
reports.  Bye the way , irises here love bone meal , it's by far the
most effective and nourishing to my irises here in the sandy loam north
of Montreal.
