Re: TB: unexpected favorites

ALPENVIEW did freeze and lose the bloomfan the first year here, increased
well, then had four beautiful bloomstalks this spring.

With our outrageous double-normal rain, now going on for a full year, I also
have rampant rot and fans peeling loose from solid, non-rotting rhizomes
bald of either fan or increase.  Alpenview lost two of its bloomstalks right
off from basal stem rot, fell over and were gone.  The remaining two had
magnificent bloom.  I am particularly fond of one I didn't expect to care
much for.

Keith himself has expressed a growing fondness for Alpenview.  I see why.

Then this summer I lost half the clump, one fan here, another there, but the
remaining ones look superbly healthy.  It appears to be a survivor in spite
of things.  Many other varieties succombed completely or mostly, down to
sprigs appearing from underneath older rhizomes.

I think I need to take up swamp gardening.  Semi-arid bearded irises aren't
adapted to the climate and soils at all, at least in its wet phase.
Siberians, however, are thriving.
