Re: OT: Cut flowers for cemetery

A couple of friends have brought reblooming irises into bloom in winter in  
their greenhouses. My personal experiences with forcing irises in our Florida  
room (glass on 3 sides and gro-lux lights in the daytime) led me to conclude  
that Louisiana irises are the easiest to bring into bloom in winter.  Digging 
and potting Louisiana irises in October often gave me bloom  in January and 
February. My success rate was better than 50%. Clarence Mahan,  McLean, VA
