You bet.  Finally got to see PACIFIC DESTINY bloom last year.  No rot in that
new garden spot (no iris for at least 25 years) for a  year and a half.  Look
down the row and the stress tolerant varieties stick out like sore thumbs.
 Time to recycle P D through our local plant sale to those who have time,
energy, and interest in  'good garden culture' so I can make room to torture
some more 'new' stuff next year.  Maybe some British imports!  : ).

To each their own.
