Dear Linda: Thank you for the praise. NORTHWARD HO has an interesting
pedigree. Its pod parent was the best iris in Earl Hall's garden in respect
to its behavior during the winter, in a test he engaged in some 15 years
ago. That robust plant was from ENGLISH COTTAGE X unknown, but originally
thought to be an onco-bred. I doubt greatly that it was the onco-bred. The
pollen parent of N HO is RE-TREAT, from the late Raymond G. Smith of
  There is no rebloom here. We have had a bit of rain , and the growth
season is upon us again. Hopefully there will be some rebloom for our
Region 4 meeting the end of October. Having lost most of my l998 seeds set
out this spring, due to an early hot-hot spell, I have been watering the
year-old seedlings, with a view to getting them to bloom.
   \Now we are dodging hurricanes. DENNIS is on his way back to us!!!!
Hopefully he will not proceed due west!!!! Lloyd Z. in Durham NC.
