Re: William A. Setchell

Bill Shear mentioned Wm Setchell, a large purple iris.  I have several
> large clumps of it and also distributed it at our summer iris sale
> (CVIS).  It is currently at the top of my list of favorite irises.  Last
> summer I took a photo with a ruler along side the large purple flower.
> It measured 8" from top to bottom.  It is a vigorous grower with huge
> rhizomes.  I was given it by a friend who gave me a bag full of rhizomes in
> January which she had left over when dividing and forgot to give me
> earlier.  They did not bloom until the second summer but they were worth
> the wait.  I took a bloom to Cameron Hall's garden and he identified it
> for me.  He also had a bloom of Wm. A. Setchell (Brehm 1938) open at that
> time. I just noticed it was listed incorrectly in the 1939 checklist at
> pure white, but corrected in the 1949 checklist.  I have planted this
> year a collection of historic irises from Cameron.  Several are on the
> list being discussed.  I'm looking forward to seeing them bloom and
> enjoying hearing hints of what to expect.
