Re: Sulfur

     First, let me introduce myself. I am Carole Mitchell from Lecompton, 
Kansas ( halfway between Lawrence and Topeka) - Zone 5.  I have been growing 
and collecting irises in Illinois and Kansas since 1973, and have been a 
member of AIS since then.  My collection includes all of the Dykes Medal 
winners through 2000, and a large collection of  historic irises as well.  In 
1994, I joined HIPS and have donated historic irises to their sale most years 
since.  I was very sorry to read the message about the illness of Larry 
Harder.  He is the one I responded to each year with my list of historic 
irises to donate to the sale.  I met him for the first time at the AIS 
Convention in Okla. City.  I wish him well.
     In keeping up with your messages this past week or so, I decided to join 
in your conversation on the use of sulfur to control rot.  Does anyone use 
diluted household bleach or cleanser (such as Comet)?  I have used both for 
many years, and find them effective, especially the bleach.  I use 1/2 cup 
bleach to a gallon of water, and soak the rizomes as I dig them for about 
10-15 minutes.  I pour about 1 cup of this solution around the clumps that I 
don't dig.  I have also dusted the plants with cleanser.
     Does anyone happen to know what the 2001 Dykes Medal winner is?  I have 
just obtained and planted the 2000 winner, Stairway to Heaven.
