CULT:Growing Edith

Originally, I got Edith Wolford from Monty Byers.  It grew well that  winter 
and had two bloom stalks that first spring.  Instantly, I fell in  love with 
the clean, clear colors.  After giving me that one taste of  heaven, Edith 
immediately reverted to form and disappeared!  
Since 1998, I've been growing her in the 17 inch pot.  Not perfect but  I do 
enjoy her blooms nearly every spring.  KEVIN'S THEME (Kerr 93) is  probably my 
favorite child of Edith.  Boy does it love Kentucky!  Or  maybe STRICTLY 
BALLROOM (Lauer-sib to SH).  It loves KY too!    Also, love JURASSIC PARK  
(colors) but it's not as happy here.  
SKY KING RETURNS (Lauer 2003) , an Edith grandchild, is blooming in  the 
garden today.  It was planted last year. It's a pretty iris.  
EDITH WOLFORD has 93 descendants listed in the  register!  (through 2003)  
I've used Edith, too, and I'm happy  with these children/grandchildren.
