<< Why is TWIST OF FATE a poor garden Iris? >>

I have a number of friends who love TWIST OF FATE, and with its most dramatic
coloring that is easy to do.  They continue to grow it, and continue to love
it. But, in point scoring a clump of this iris (if you can get it to form a
good clump), points would have to be subtracted in a number of areas, e.g.
bud count, branching.  But the biggest problem in my experience is that it is
slow to increase and tempermental. If it were a better grower one would see
it in every catalogue and garden, because lots of people who see it want it.
 But who knows? It may do well for you in your climate and soil.    Clarence
