   V. sez:
   Now I have always heard that bearded irises preferred a
slightly acidic soil - around 6.5. Yet I know that George
Sutton has had good luck growing them in a very alkaline
soil. Apparently there is a fairly wide range that they can
tolerate. Has anyone tried growing them at two different
pHs in the same garden and compared the difference?
