Re: No. of fans and stalks? Shakespeare?

Clark asked:

2. Did Wm. Shakespeare ever write anything about irises?

I don't recall his mentioning iris.. but I'll check it out (no, I won't read
everything, I'll ask my son-in-law the actor, director, associate director
of the Kavinoky Theatre and fabulous lead in the Scotish play and his friends)

If he did, the mention would undoubtedly be in the sonnets, if anyone wants
to read all of them.

There is, however, an iris called City of Stratford that I purchased in
Hamilton, Ontario this fall.  Chris H might be able to describe it.

ATUAs for your first question, do you think that in her wisdom, Mother NA
(that's Mother Nature) would allow every fan to bloom in a five fan increase?

She does allow bloom-out, sometimes, so it might happen.  

I don't know what triggers bloom, but growth starts when the soil is about
50F. and the bloom was set in the previous fall.
