Dear Richard:  I would certainly advise using "Eastern" remontants in your
TB hybridizing. It is so much more fun to see flowers at other times of the
year than just spring. Also, they are hardier and have better foliage, on
the average, than the once-blooming sorts. I am sure they are the TB iris
of the future. Lloyd Zurbrigg in Durham NC, who has been working with them
for nearly fifty years.
