	It seems to me that we already have a 'race' of irises that fit
the definition of 'landscape irises' provided by the Spoons.  I am talking
about the Intermediate Bearded. For me, they are essentially carefree, not
too tall, increase rapidly, produce masses of well-formed  blooms,
need no staking, and are essentially disease-free (including rot).  The
only negative side to the IB's is that they don't freely cross with each
other, though some have great fertility - the latter having nothing to do
with their value as 'landscape' subjects.  Break the monotony of your all
TB garden or all beardless garden with a few of these.  You will be well

while Middle Mississippi got up to 12 inches of snow in the Jackson,
Vicksburg, Meridian areas - thanks to El Nino or as someone said 'La
Nina!'  The last time such a snowfall occurred there was in 1982, the last
El Nino year).
