Hi, Kathryn! It is true that I am behind in my Hybridizers postings,
but so far I have only two new ones to post. Hardly anyone responded to
my letters, but I do plan to follow up. Sorry that I am not familiar
with the two you mention, but I will certainly find out from our local
people, who know a LOT more than I do!
I am curious--are you (or your husband) related to any or all of the
Mohrs of iris fame? And I would like to know whether H. C. is the son of
William. I know that David and Kenneth are H.C.'s sons, tho. There is
also a Mary Mohr in Colorado.
