Sounds good to me, although I like some of the modern colors, and better
substance is nice, and a LITTLE bit of ruffling...  come to think of it, the
only things I don't much like in the newer tall bearded iris is the
overabundance of buds (I prefer lots of stalks with only one or two flowers
per stalk open at a time) and the form of the flowers.

Are there pollen daubers already doing this?
