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.
