Re: Evaluation Criteria

In a message dated 96-12-27 19:19:04 EST, you write:

<< Some iris, like my ol' favorite DUSKY CHALLENGER seem to just grow
 in a straight line, adding an increase now and then if they feel like it,
 mostly just doing a little more than replacing itself each year.  Not only
 that, the new rhizomes are kinda long, so an established 'clump' is sort of
 straggle.   >>

I think I just accidently sent an unfinished message!  I'll try again.  You,
Linda Mann, are very observant.  Very observant.  DUSKY CHALLENGER has
increased quite well for me, but the way it has increased is exactly as you
describe!  As a result, unless you reset it every two years, the '"clump"
looks elongated.  Not the best attribute for a Dykes winner I fear.  (And I
admit I voted for it...and it is gorgeous!)  Clarence Mahan in VA
