RE: JI's and Spurias

Hi Robin,

Good luck.

You can try any of the JIs from Ensata Gardens.  They acclimate very well to
zone 4/5.  I haven't had any luck with the ones from the west coast.

For spurias, I have Tiger Blues and Clara Ellen.  You have to be patient
with spurias.  Tiger Blues took 6 years and Clara Ellen 4 years to acclimate
here.  But they have been blooming every year since.

There are some that would probably do better, likely Dave Niswonger's
spurias.  I have some seedlings from Lee Walker and one bloomed in its
second year.

zone 4/5

Subject: [iris] JI's and Spurias

I've decided that I just have to try some of the other 
irses besides the bearded varieties.  I would like to try 
Spurias and JI's.  Do any of you have any recommendations 
on some hardy cultivars to start out with?  We have some 
winters that think about being zone 4 rather than zone 5.
