There are so many Iris out there--to use in a breeding program--it would
seem very ridiculous to use something like Colchicine--when you are not
familiar with it--or working with chemicals and using the appropriate safety
devises to protect yourself while working with it. In years past, I had to
use it in daily work--and I had to gown, rubber apron, heavy rubber gloves,
face mask, eye goggles--and wash down before returning to regular
uniforms--I was always very glad when using it was discontinued--
Is it worth the hazard of really drastically doing some permanent damage to
Do you know what it does to lungs and livers?
It is not something to just play around with--
Carryl in western Montana zone 3/4--where it is 7 F out there--but about 6"
snow cover--and Iris leaves are still standing up above the snow.
