I agree about slow start and profuse bloom.  But I had a beautiful display of
bloom in my old established rot infested bed last spring when the rest of the
country was cancelling iris shows for lack of bloom, so it must not be
entirely 'wrong'.  I thought we had some others on the list admit to some rot
with IMMORTALITY - Lloyd, didn't you say you had heard other reports of rot?

Oh, that's terrible, asking the iris parents to say bad things about their
babies.  Never mind!
