Lets try a whole new line of thinking.

What are  the benefits of having and maintaining an
Iris Garden?

1.  The  aesthetic value for me is unparallel, when
the flowers are in bloom of  course but when there
are just leaves too.
2.  I have learned a  great deal here on the chat
and just working in my garden with  Iris.
3.  Physically I am healthier than I have been
since I left  the farm I grew up on.
a.  Two years ago I had 6 yards  of dirt
brought in and I moved it all slowly, maybe two
wheelbarrow  loads at a time.
