Re: clumpers vs. travellers


I have species LA'S and two or three hybrids. The species was not effected by the grasshoppers or the hybrids. My problem with them is the drought that I suffered throught last year. It effected the bloom on them. I had about 15 blooms on my species and none on my hybrids. I also have about 10 seed pods on them.

What is name of the new dwarf species of LA'S?

    Subject: [iris-talk] clumpers vs. travellers
    Good Morning:
    I am doing a bit of research on two topics dealing with Louisiana irises:
    1.)  Do any listers have recommendations for Louisianas that tend to make
    tight clumps, rather than travel about the garden like Marco Polo?  I'd
    like to know the ones that are best in your garden, plus the ones that are
    worst.  I'd like to do an article on this eventually.
    2.)  A second area of inquiry is the issue of grasshopper damage to
    Louisiana iris foliage.  I saw some interesting patterns this year.  For
    example, if you had grasshopper damage...did the Louisiana SPECIES suffer
    more than the hybrids?
    Don't worry with advising me to post this on the Louisianqa iris listserv;
    I've already done that.
    Thanks for any replies.
