YOU have control over any particluar hybridizers' plants that won't grow
for you--DON'T BUY ANY MORE OF THEM!!  If you have better success with
one hybridizer's varieties over another hybridizer, buy their varieties. 

Another good checking point--see how many other iris catalogs that
variety is listed in.  If it grows well, it will be in many catalogs. 
If it doesn't--you won't find it in many places.  Commercial growers
won't waste time with varieties that won't grow--I can vouch for that!

light rain they say--that means get out the rain slickers!!
