Welcome, Randy. I hope to get to Denver next spring. I am interested in the
Space-Age irises, and have been working with them for 25 years. Monty Byers
gave this type of iris a big lift upwards. Alas, some of his are not
suitable for the East, but those that are , are great. He built his
breeding on SKY HOOKS, which never was a good performer for me. So most of
my things are outcrosses to Monty's , which is an advantage. He and I both
sought rebloom also, but so far a good reblooming Space-Ager of the East
has not appeared. Surely soon. Lloyd Zurbrigg in Durham NC
