     I have noticed with great interest the disucssion about the
gardenability of Irises and some hybridizers Irises not growing in certain
areas.  I have encountered the same thing, but I hesitate to totally
blackball a hybridizer.  When most of the plants tried from a certain
hybridizer's fail to grow, I will not purchase any more from that
hybridizer for the time being.  However, if I see a plant introduced by
that same hybridizer performing well in another Lexington, KY garden, I
will try to swap for a start of that plant.  While at times I may say that
certain plants don't do well from me, I will not criticize the hybridizer
when I know that his/her introductions perform great somewhere else.
