Dear Linda,

I believe you missed my point.  I was trying to explain the importance
of "Clean" soil.  If your soil was free from the buildup of disease,
fungus and insects you would be able to grow many more iris than you do
now.  I would not consider this pampering, just good garden culture.  I
challenge you to plant several new varieties (new to you not necessarily
brand new) in a different part of your garden where iris have not grown
for the past 3 years.  See the difference!

Ps: By the way, Victoria Falls is a west coast iris.  (Schreiner '77)
