<< Enjoyed  the article on this writer whose horticultural works I read  some
 thirty plus years ago. I believe it was he who wrote about a member of his
 family  "He died of a clump of I. stylosa"  The patient, (his grandafther?)
 insisted on going out to the clump and died from the cold. "  Lloyd Zurbrigg
 Durham NC >>

Lloyd, Thank you! This is a marvelous quote! Ah, the poetry of it all! He
died for for an iris!  I have had much the same experience, you know.  In my
case, irises have died for me!   Clarence Mahan in Virginia
