Linda, you make some good points.  We all need to let the hybridizers 
know how their plants are doing.  Chapters within R4 have purchased 
recent intros so they can be evaluated during conventions.  I do not know 
if there was documentation sent back to the hybridizers.  There should 
be...for sure.
The second point is amusing, but....how true is it?  
Seriously folks, we are all guilty of not providing proper feedback to 
those hybridizers we are currently growing.  Another good point has 
already been mentioned. If irises from a certain hybridizer do not do 
well, don't buy them.  Plain and simple!

Happy Catalog looking
