Lowell Baumunk's list

Lowell's list brought back many happy memories.  A number of the varieties
RYTHYM, CHIVALRY) were among the first irises I ever planted, back in 1956.
Some were part of a collection from Schreiner's but Cherie and Chivalry
were ordered separately.  Cherie never bloomed there in the mountains of
northern Pennsylvania, and soon succumbed to rot.  I don't think I have
ever seen it bloom.   The others were very successful, and I dragged them
around with me for quite awhile from move to move.  Except for Zantha,
which I recall as large and rather floppy, all of them had small, compact
flowers of very good substance, especially Black Forest and Grand Canyon.
Blue Rythym was especially vigorous and made a fine clump of tall,
well-branched stalks.

Does anyone recall a huge bitone violet named WM. SETCHELL, and  the red
bitone REDWYNE?  They were other early favorites.

But enough of this wallowing in sentiment!

Best wishes, Bill
