Re: CULT: mulch (was TB: Mariah)


Walter, do you have a copy of the various reports/parts of reports?  Seems like something
HIPS might want to get hold of and sell reprints maybe?

I wonder why they chose PINNACLE?

I remember from the one Bernice Miller catalog (also in Region 24, I think, southern
Alabama?) that I received that she was very interested in cultural conditions (pH more
than mulch as I recall) and was doing a lot of studies of a lot of different cultivars
under different conditions.

Did any of the results reported in her catalogs ever wind up in Bulletin Articles?

Now that I've memorized most of the pedigrees of all tall bearded irises ever introduced
<G>, it would be interesting to see if there might be some relationships among different
breeding lines that persist to this day.
